ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Binghamton scored five third period goals en route to a come-from-behind victory in Rochester over the Americans.  Mark Stone scored twice for the B-Sens while six other skaters finished with two points to give Binghamton its third straight victory.  Andrew Hammond stopped 19 of 22 shots faced for his 19th win of the season.

The Amerks opened the scoring 1:12 into the first period when Mike Zigomanis batted home a loose puck on the crease.  Johan Larsson and Kevin Porter were credited with the assists on Zigomanis’ 12th goal of the year.

Binghamton’s power-play unit evened the score at one goal apiece at the 8:18 mark of the opening period on Matt Puempel’s 23rd tally of his rookie campaign.  Working the man advantage Stephane Da Costa cycled the puck to Chris Wideman on the the far point.  Wideman sent a pass to Puempel at the top of the right circle who one-timed the feed past Rochester’s Matt Hackett to covert on the five-on-three man advantage.

Rochester retook the lead on its own five-on-three power-play when Luke Adam chipped home a puck off of Binghamton’s Mark Borowiecki at 14:16 of the first.  Borowiecki went to the locker room following the shot while the first period ended with the Amerks holding the 2-1 lead.  Hammond, starting in net for Binghamton for the third consecutive night, stopped six of eight Americans’ shots while Hackett turned aside six of 7 B-Sens tries on net through the opening 20 minutes of play.

Binghamton looked to be headed to the third period trailing Rochester 2-1 before the Sens evened the score with 28 seconds remaining in the middle frame.  Buddy Robinson and Jean-Gabriel Pageau grabbed the helpers on Schneider’s 18th goal of the season.  Hammond stopped all nine shots faced in the period.

The B-Sens offense exploded for five goals in the final 20 minutes of play to take the game 7-3.  Binghamton scored three straight to start the period, the first coming from Buddy Robinson 4:48 into the period.

Binghamton extended its lead to 4-2 when David Dziurzynski followed up his own shot to push home a rebound off of Hackett before the Sens made it a three-goal advantage on Stone’s first marker of the night 14:39 into the period.

Porter shrunk the Senators lead to 5-3 at 15:47 on a power-play goal but Binghamton responded 18 seconds later with a goal from Fredrik Claesson.  Stone moved the final to 7-3 with his 15th marker of the year at 18:30 to give the B-Sens the victory.

Claesson, Puempel, Robinson and Schneider all finished with a goal and an assist while Da Costa and Pageau chipped in a pair of helpers to help Binghamton back into first place in the East Division.

Binghamton hits the road for three straight road games starting Wednesday, March 19 when they visit Albany for a 7:00p.m. faceoff versus the Devils.  The B-Sens then travel to Norfolk for back-to-back games against the Admirals on the 21st and 22nd.
