THIS WEEK…
 
Wednesday, March 24 vs. Toronto Marlies (Toronto Maple Leafs)
 
The Toronto Marlies make their only appearance at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena this Wednesday. The Marlies (29-30-6-5, 69 points) are tied with the Lake Erie Monsters for fifth place in the North Division. The B-Sens and Marlies last met in Toronto on Nov. 27, a 5-4 loss for Binghamton. Josh Hennessy recorded a two-point night against the Marlies with a goal and an assist. The Marlies enter the game with only nine road wins, although their last win away from the Ricoh Coliseum came Jan. 13 in Milwaukee (a 3-2 win over the Admirals). Former B-Sen Brennan Evans comes to town. He is currently leading the Marlies in penalty minutes, and is ranked 12th overall in the AHL with 181 penalty minutes.  
 
Friday, March 26 @ Rochester Americans (Florida Panthers)
 
The B-Sens travel to Rochester to take on the Amerks for the second time in the span of a week. The Amerks will be looking to rebound from their 4-2 loss in Binghamton last week as they battle for playoff positioning in the North Division. Rochester enters the week third in the North with a record of 38-30-2-0 (78 points). The game between the inter-division rivals is the last of ten between the teams during the 2009-10 season. Rochester holds the edge in the series having gone 6-3 against the B-Sens. All three B-Sens victories over the Amerks have come at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.
 
Sunday, March 21 @ Hershey Bears (Washington Capitals)
 
In what will likely be the most challenging match for the B-Sens this week, Sunday the team travels to the Giant Center to take on the East Division Champions, the Hershey Bears. The Bears lead the American Hockey League with a record of 53-14-0-3 (109 points) and have a commanding 29-4-0-2 record on home ice. One of their four losses at home came against the Binghamton Senators. Oct. 24 the B-Sens left Chocolate Town having beaten the bears 5-2. 
 
SENS SNIPPITS
 
Chris Holt earned the nod as the B-Sens nominee for Reebok/AHL Player of the Week for the week ending March 21. Holt started in all four B-Sens games last week, earning a 3-1 record. In four games Holt stopped 105 of 114 shots faced, ending the week with a 2.27 goals-against average and a 0.921 save percentage. Friday, March 19 versus Rochester (a 4-2 B-Sens victory), Holt scored a goal with 24 seconds remaining in regulation to become only the 10th goaltender in American Hockey League history to do so.
 
Denis Hamel played in his 700th career American Hockey League game Saturday, March 20 versus the Albany River Rats.
 
Martin St. Pierre’s assist Sunday, March 21 at Albany earned him his 400th career American Hockey League point. 
 
The B-Sens have won nine of their last 12 games and have pushed their way to fifth place in the East Division. Binghamton enters the week trailing the last playoff spot in the AHL’s Eastern Conference by eight points.
