Video: Stars’ Benn, Blues’ Backes drop the gloves for spirited tilt


Tempers were apparently short between Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars and David Backes of the St. Louis Blues during the first period of Saturday’s game.

So, they dropped the gloves in a spirited fight.

Benn entered Saturday leading the league in goals with 20, and tied with teammate Tyler Seguin for second in the NHL in points with 40.
