B-Sens Recap: Losing Streak Hits Four After Two Weekend Losses
The Binghamton Senators' season high losing streak has now reached four-games after dropping two at home this past weekend.
On Friday night, the B-Sens jumped out to a two-goal lead early. Jim O'Brien scored just 32 seconds in and Buddy Robinson notched a goal six-and-a-half minutes later. Hershey was able to get within one before the first period ended.
In the second, it was all Hershey as they scored twice for the 3-2 lead going into the final frame. Nicolas Deschamps, who already had the game winning goal, scored again in the third to seal the 4-2 victory for the visiting Bears.
On Saturday, the Albany Devils invaded the Arena in an evenly played contest. Albany capitalized on two power-play goals, the second would tie the game at 2 in the second period.
Mark Stone and Matt Puempel scored for the B-Sens. Puempel's power-play goal snapped an 0-17 skid for Binghamton on the man advantage.
In the third, both goaltenders had strong efforts to keep the game knotted at 2. In the overtime period, the B-Sens outshot Albany 13-0 but could not slip the puck past Devils' netminder Keith Kinkaid and the game went to a shootout.
Stefan Matteau and Artem Demkov scored for Albany while only Andre Petersson was able to score for the B-Sens and Binghamton was defeated 3-2.
Binghamton has three games this upcoming week. They are home Wednesday night against the Hershey Bears and then head out on the road this weekend, with their first matchup with the Utica Comets on Friday night and another contest with the Hershey Bears on Saturday.
