Pierre-Cedric Labrie scored with 30 seconds remaining in regulation, to complete a Norfolk Admirals comeback and help his team defeat the Binghamton Senators 3-2 at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena last Friday night. 
 
The B-Sens started out strong as they jumped to a 2-0 nothing first period lead. Mike Hoffman and Rob Klinkhammer each scored goals in the opening period. 
 
Brandon Segal cut the B-Sens’ lead in half just 15 seconds into the second period.
 
In the third period, Evan Oberg tied the game, 2-2, at 6:27, beating Mike McKenna with just five seconds remaining on an Admirals power play opportunity. Oberg also assisted on Segal’s second period tally, earning two points and first star honors. 
 
Just as it appeared the game would stretch to overtime, Labrie put away the game winner off a rebound with 30 seconds remaining in regulation to claim the victory. 
 
McKenna made his second consecutive start in goal for the B-Sens, falling to 13-16-0 on the season despite putting forth a 36 save effort. Dustin Tokarski turned aside 33 shots for the Admirals to improve to 24-11-0.
 
Saturday, Feb. 25: Adirondack 2, Binghamton 1 - Shootout
Shots: Adirondack 52, Binghamton 42
PP: Adirondack 0 for 4, Binghamton 0 for 2
 
The B-Sens winless streak was extended to three games as they dropped a 2-1 decision to the Adirondack Phantoms at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena on Saturday night. The game was decided in a shootout, with former B-Sens captain Denis Hamel scoring the game winning tally in the second round.
 
Despite both teams putting up a high number of shots, the B-Sens and Phantoms remained knotted at just one goal apiece through regulation and overtime. Mike McKenna drew first star honors in the game, making 50 saves in goal for Binghamton. At the other end of the rink, Michael Leighton would turn aside 41 shots. 
Adirondack drew first blood in the game as Rob Bordson put the Phantoms on the board with just 7.6 seconds remaining in the game’s opening period. 
The B-Sens answered, tying the game at 7:56 of the second period. Derek Grant deflected Rob Klinkhammer’s rebound into the net for his sixth goal of the season. Wacey Hamilton also drew an assist on the play. 
Leighton would go on to stone all four Binghamton shooters in the shootout. Hamel and Bordson succeeded on their shootout attempts to claim the victory for the Phantoms.

Derek Grant, Corey Locke, and Pat Cannone rounded out the scoresheet for the B-Sens with third period goals. David Dziurzynski and Locke also put forth multi-point efforts, each earning credit for a pair of assists. 
 
The lone strike for the IceCaps came just past the midway point of period one as Kenndal McArdle snapped a shot in high on Bishop from the left wing face-off dot.

SENS SNIPPETS…

B-SENS BRINGING IT HOME TO THE COMMUNITY…
 
B-Sens coaches Kurt Kleinendorst and Steve Stirling, and B-Sens players Mark Borowiecki, Tim Conboy, Mike McKenna, Mark Parrish and Patrick Wiercioch will participate in an Open House event, sponsored by Harding Brooks Insurance, on Monday, March 12 to benefit the Jack Jablonski Fund. 
 
Jack Jablonski, known as Jabby or Jabs to his friends, is a 16 year old hockey player from Minnesota. On Dec. 30, Jablonski was checked from behind and careened into the boards head first, severing his spinal cord.
 
The B-Sens have joined forces with the Broome County High School Hockey Association and Southern Tier Hockey Association locally, as they raise money to assist the Jablonski family with their mounting medical expenses.
 
The evening will feature a chance to talk with the coaches and players about this season, last year’s run for the Calder Cup and hockey in general.
   
The event will take place at the private home of Bob and Chris Lacey (656 Oak Hill Road, Binghamton) on Monday, March 12 from 6 to 9 p.m. In addition to a meet and greet with B-Sens coaches and players there will be appetizers, pizza and beverages. 
 
Tickets to the event are $25 per person or $50 for a family of four. 100% of the proceeds from the evening will benefit the Jack Jablonski Fund. For more information or to purchase tickets please call 607-648-3456.
