B-Sens Grab Fifth Straight at Home with Win Over Comets

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – Binghamton made it five straight wins at home after they defeated the Utica Comets 6-3.  Zack Stortini and Guillaume Lepine each tallied a goal and two assists while six different skaters scored for the B-Sens.  
 
The Binghamton Senators opened the scoring 6:22 into the first period when Cole Schneider netted his twelfth goal of the year despite being on the game's first penalty-kill.  With that tally, the B-Sens moved their shorthanded goal scoring to seven on the year.  Stortini doubled Binghamton's lead when he knocked home a rebound off a shot from Tobias Lindberg just shy of the midway point of the frame.  With less than six minutes to play in the opening period, Lepine beat Richard Bachman with a sharp-angled wrist shot for his second of the year and subsequently brought Bachman's night in net for the Comets to an end.  Travis Ehrhardt grabbed his fifth goal of the year with 3:32 to play in the period to cut Binghamton's lead to 3-1.  Chris Driedger stopped eight of nine shots faced in the period while Bachman allowed three goals on seven shots faced.  Joe Cannata stopped the lone shot faced in 5:46 of relief goaltending. 
 
Former B-Sen Wacey Hamilton cut the Binghamton lead to 3-2 just 2:56 into the second with his fourth strike of the year.  Ryan Penny pushed home his second goal of the season 5:23 into the middle period to regain Binghamton's two-goal advantage before Kyle Flanagan knocked home another loose puck by Cannata with just over 22 seconds to play in the period to give the B-Sens the 5-2 lead heading into the final intermission break.  
 
Binghamton added to their three-goal lead 3:44 into the final period while working the power-play when Michael Kostka sent a shot from the point that maneuvered through a maze of bodies to make it 6-2.  John Kurtz scored his second goal of the year just past the midway point of the period, but that was as close as the visitors would get with the final score ending 6-3 in favor of Binghamton.  
 
Driedger finished with 27 saves to give Binghamton their fifth straight win at home.  Cannata allowed three goals on 19 shots faced in a little over 45 minutes of relief goaltending in the losing effort.  
 
Binghamton is back on home ice tomorrow when they host the Rochester Americans at 7:05p.m.  Fans can purchase tickets by calling the B-Sens Executive Office beginning at 8:00a.m. tomorrow through the game’s second intermission.  Fans can also purchase tickets through the Arena Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets during normal business hours by visiting www.ticketmaster.com or at 1-800-745-3000.
