THIS WEEK…
 
Friday, Dec. 3 @ Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh Penguins)
 
The B-Sens make their fourth and final trip of the 2010-11 regular season to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza this Friday night. The B-Sens are 2-1-0-1 against the East Division leading Penguins so far this season and have outscored the Pens 12 to seven. 15 different B-Sens have scored against Wilkes-Barre, while only ten Penguins have managed to earn points against the Senators. Seven of those 15 B-Sens players have two or more points. Forward Erik Condra leads the charge with six points against the Pens (one goal, five assists). 
 
Saturday, Dec. 4 @ Hershey Bears (Washington Capitals)
 
The B-Sens are set to make their second trip to the Giant Center in Hershey this Saturday for the fourth of eight meetings between the two teams this season. The B-Sens enter the week trailing the Bears by only two points in the East Division standings. Hershey currently ranks fourth in the division with a record of 12-9-0-1, good for 25 points. The Bears are an even 6-6-0-0 on home ice, but have managed to outscore the B-Sens at the Giant Center 24 to 14 over the past two seasons. Bears forward Andrew Gordon currently leads the AHL in goals with 15. Gordon also leads the league in power play goes with nine. 
 
SENS SNIPPETS…
 
B-Sens defenseman Derek Smith earned the B-Sens Reebok/AHL Player of the Week nomination for the week ending Nov. 28. Smith recorded five points (one goal, four assists) in three games last week.  Nov. 25 Smith had a three-point performance (one goal, two assists) as the B-Sens defeated the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins 5-2; this included an assist on Zack Smith's game winning goal.  The B-Sens alternate captain ranks second overall among all Binghamton defenseman in scoring this season with two goals and 11 assists for 13 points.  Smith's four assists this week helped push him past Antoine Vermette on the B-Sens list of all-time assists leaders, where he is now tied with Brian Pothier for sixth overall with 76 assists. 
 
Rookie forward Bobby Butler notched four of his five game winning goals in the month of November, ranking him first overall among all American Hockey League players in game winning goals.    
 
Goaltender Barry Brust put up three straight 40-plus save performances in the month of November. Nov. 19 versus Hershey (a 4-2 B-Sens win) Brust turned away 42 shots, Nov. 20 versus Hartford (a 3-2 B-Sens overtime loss) he turned away 40 shots and Nov. 25 vs. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (a 5-2 B-Sens win) he made an AHL season-high 52 saves, just two saves shy of tying the B-Sens all time record for most saves in a game.
