Danny New scored his first of the season and Cole Schneider added two-straight powerplay goals for Binghamton who had a brief 4-3 lead. Hershey tied is late in the second and then scored the three goals in the third for the win.
The game was marred by 143 combined penalty minutes for the squads. Sens goalie Andrew Hammond took the loss allowing seven goals on 41 shots.
