– This is deep. We’ve experienced a lot with this group, Benn started and fell silent.

– It was a good performance. It’s pretty hard right now. We were two games away from the championship, Benn said.
The picture moved back to the Sportsnet studio, the presenter of which concisely stated that Benn’s interview was “heartbreaking”.
