Binghamton Senators Need a Win Friday Night
It now comes down to do or die time for the Binghamton Senators. They must win tomorrow night's playoff game at Wilkes-Barre to stay alive in the hunt for the Calder Cup. With last night's 3-2 overtime win the Penguins are up two games to one in the best-of-five playoff series. If Binghamton can capture tomorrow night's contest the teams would travel back to Binghamton for a fifth and deciding game on Monday night May 5th at 7:05.
Last night the Penguins won on an overtime goal scored by Chuck Kobsasew 7:32 into the extra session. B-Sens forward Jim O'Brien tied the game at the 10 minute mark of the third period. Earlier Corey Cowick had scored for Binghamton.
Goaltender Andrew Hammond made 30 saves while Pens' netminder Peter Mannino turned aside 20 shots in posting the win. All three games in the series have gone into overtime.
