you ready for the playoffs

Benn said he pushed in those last three games not to catch Tavares for the Art Ross Trophy (although that was a rewarding byproduct), but to show his teammates that they can’t stop playing just because the math says they’re out of the playoff race.

‘You still have a job to do,’ Benn said. 'I wanted to set a good example. I wanted to go out there and still play hard. You’re not only playing for yourself, but for your organization and for the city of Dallas. You have to treat that with respect.’
