BINGHAMTON, NY. – Francis Perron scored the overtime game-winning goal in front of 4,439 fans Saturday night to help lead the Binghamton Senators to a 3-2 victory over the Springfield Thunderbirds at the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena.
 
Jack Rodewald brought an end to the scoring stalemate 27:31 into the game with his team-leading 13th goal of the year in the second period. Rodewald picked up the puck in the center slot right in front of former B-Sens goalie Mike McKenna. The forward beat McKenna on the right top shelf with assists coming from Kyle Flanagan and Max McCormick.
 
The Thunderbirds answered back with a goal to tie up the game with two minutes remaining in the middle frame. After several scoring chances, Anthony Greco scored his sixth goal of the year when a puck deflected in off a B-Sens skater. Sena Acolatse had the assist on the tying goal as the teams went to the locker room for the final intermission with Binghamton being outshot 21-14.
 
The teams fought it out in the third period scoring a goal each to bring the score to 2-2 at the end of the regulation. Springfield struck first just over six minutes into the final frame after Jayce Hawryluk brought the puck up Matt O’Connor’s left side, faked out a shot, and sent a cross ice feed to Denis Malgin. Malgin beat O’Connor on his right side for his first goal of the year with Chase Balisy getting the secondary assist.
 
Jason Akeson scored his fourth goal of the season with 1:18 left to play to tie up the game and force overtime. Akeson brought the puck to the top of the right faceoff circle and let a wrister go that flew past McKenna. Chris Rumble and Nick Paul assisted on the equalizing goal, and the teams went to extra time with the B-Sens being outshot 32-24.
 
Perron scored the game-winning goal with only 17 seconds remaining in overtime on a power-play chance following a ‘too many men on the ice’ call against Springfield. Phil Varone found Perron on the left side of the zone who sent a shot to the top shelf under the cross bar for his sixth of the year. Akeson helped assist with the game-winning goal and the B-Sens defeated the Thunderbirds 3-2.
 
O’Connor earned his second win in as many nights stopping 34 shots while McKenna finished with 24 saves in the losing effort.
