Binghamton Senators Host Hershey
The Binghamton Senators played their only home game of the weekend February 20 when they host the Hershey Bears at 7:05 p.m. at the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena.
Hershey was in first place in the East Division of the American Hockey League while the B-Sens were tied for fourth in that division.
Coming into play, the Bears record was 30-135-2 for 67 points. The B-Sens were 21-24-5-1 for 48 points.
It was also "Do It For Daron" night. Fans are urged to wear purple in honor of Daron Richardson (daughter of coach Like Richardson) who lost her life to suicide in 2010. Purple was Daron's favorite color. There were several fund-raising events going on at the game with proceeds going to the Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier in support of youth mental health.
The B-Sens travel to Syracuse to meet the Crunch February 21 at 7 p.m. Binghamton's next home game is Friday, February 27 when they host Hershey again.
