B-Sens Hold On For 6-5 OT Win Over Bridgeport

Binghamton traveled to Bridgeport for their third game in as many days, toppling the Sound Tigers 6-5 in overtime and taking four of the possible six points from this weekend’s games.  The B-Sens went a perfect four-for-four in power play opportunities, including Mike Hoffman’s extra man tally 4:16 into the extra period to complete his three point performance (two goals, one assist). 

 
Troy Rutkowski scored his first American Hockey League goal 5:35 into the first period off assists from Shane Prince and Stephane Da Costa to start the scoring for Binghamton.  Less than one minute later Mika Zibanejad beat Sound Tiger’s starting goaltender Anders Nilsson for another power-play goal off helpers from Hoffman and Cody Ceci.  Power play success continued for Binghamton as Hoffman was able to put another past Nilsson at the 13:02.  Bridgeport replaced Nilsson between the pipes with Kenny Reiter after the Sens third goal of the period.  Ryan Strome was able to put the Sound Tigers on the board at 17:13 of the first before heading to the locker room.


The middle frame started quickly for the home team as Bridgeport was able to climb within one after John Persson beat Sens starting goal Andrew Hammond just one minute into the period.  Bridgeport was able to get some offense going in the second, however the score would remain 3-1 Binghamton heading into the second intermission. 


In the third period the Sound Tigers were able to tie the contest at three a piece just 2:44 into the period when Persson added his second tally of the game.  Cole Schneider responded for Binghamton scoring his first two goals of the season at 3:48 and 7:59 of the final period to put the B-Sens back up by two goals.  However two goals from Bridgeport just over two minutes apart would send the game into overtime. 


The overtime period brought few chances for either team, until Binghamton was able to complete a perfect night for its extra man advantage when Hoffman buried the game winner with under a minute to play in the extra frame.

Andrew Hammond picked up his first victory of the season stopping 28 of 33 shots faced.  Coming in relief of Nilsson, Reiter was able to stop 14 of 17 shots faced for the loss.  Zibanejad finished with a goal and two assists for the B-Sens, while in the losing effort Persson added two goals and an assist for Bridgeport. 


The B-Sens return to action next weekend with two straight home games at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.  Friday they will face Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, who leads the AHL with a 6-0-0-0 record, in a 7:05 p.m. puck drop.  The following night the Sens will welcome the Adirondack Phantoms.  Tickets for both games are available by calling the Binghamton Senators Executive office at (607) 722-7367 or stopping in between 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.  Fans can also purchase tickets through the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets during normal business hours by visiting
