Binghamton Devils Snap Losing Skid
The Binghamton Devils snapped their eight-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the Utica Comets on Saturday night at the Floyd L Maines Veterans Memorial Arena. It was "Teddy Bear Toss"night with fans showering the ice after Ben Street scored the Devils' first goal of the game just 51 seconds into the first period. The Teddy Bears were collected and will be distributed to needy kids in our community.
The Devils face a busy week ahead and start things off with a 7:05 game against the Rochester Americans on Wednesday night. The Amerks are the top team in the American Hockey League's (AHL) North Division. Their record is 18-4-2-2 for 40 points. Binghamton trails the pack in the North Division with a record of 8-15-4-0 for 20 points. Wednesday night kids 12 and under can get a free ticket plus a Happy Meal when they attend with an adult who purchases a game ticket.
Following the Wednesday night home game the Devils travel to Rochester for a return encounter with the Amerks on Friday night and then head to Syracuse to meet the Crunch on Saturday night.
