Winger Grant Potulny did what no other Binghamton Senator had done before Friday night's game in Rochester; he scored four goals as Binghamton rolled to a 6-3 win against the Rochester Americans despite a depleted line up that forced the Sens to dress only 15 skaters.
Center Mike Berry, making his AHL debut after being called up from Adirondack of the UHL Friday morning, scored the game's first goal only 3:11 into the contest.
Binghamton then got a contribution from another unlikely source as Brett Clouthier scored his second goal of the season at 13:20 of the opening period.
After the Clouthier goal, it was Potulny time. Grant scored three goals in the second period, each time answering a Rochester tally to thwart any hopes the Amerks had of a comeback on home ice.
Potulny entered the game with five goals on the season, but needed only five shots to increase that total to nine. His last goal was into an empty net as Rochester attempted to close the gap in the final minute of regulation.
Both teams were one for seven with the man advantage. Billy Thompson stopped 26 of 29 shots in the win.
Binghamton returns to home ice tomorrow night at the Arena when Syracuse visits for a 6:05 p.m. face off. Tickets are going fast; reserve yours by calling (607) 722-SENS, or online at www.binghamtonsenators.com
