BINGHAMTON RIDES STRONG FIRST PERIOD TO ROUT OVER PENGUINS

BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Senators returned to the top of the East Division with a 6-2 route of the visiting Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.  Binghamton rode a five-goal first period and a solid defensive effort after to beat the Penguins for the fourth time in six games this season.  Matt Puempel notched two goals while defensemen Patrick Mullen and Alex Grant both chipped in three helpers to lead the B-Sens.

Binghamton opened the scoring 3:49 into the first period when Puempel scored his first goal off a great feed from Mullen. 

Just over a minute later, David Dziurzynski added his 10th marker of the year to push the score to 2-0 before Wacey Hamilton beat Penguins’ netminder Eric Hartzell at the 7:56 spot of the period to make it a three goal B-Sens advantage. 

Spencer Machacek cut the lead to 3-1 on a power-play goal just before the midway point of the frame, but Binghamton managed to chip in two more goals before intermission to take a 5-1 lead into the locker room. 

The B-Sens and Penguins traded goals through the second period with the first coming just under five minutes in when Puempel completed a beautiful give-and-go with Cole Schneider to make it 6-1. 

Machacek added a second goal at the 8:24 mark of the period, but Binghamton’s defense clamped down for the remainder of the contest. 

Neither team scored in the final 20 minutes of play to give the B-Sens the 6-2 win.

Andrew Hammond stopped 29 of 31 shots faced to earn his 23rd victory of the year while Hartzell managed 21 saves in the losing effort.      

Binghamton returns to home ice Friday at 7:05p.m. when they host the Hershey Bears. The B-Sens will head on the road for a Saturday matchup versus the Wilkes/Barre-Scranton Penguins at 7:05p.m. followed by a trip to Hershey Sunday for another round with the Bears at 5:00p.m.  Tickets for Friday night’s game are available by calling the Binghamton Senators Executive Office at (607) 722-7367 or stopping in between 9:00a.m. and 5:30p.m. Monday-Friday.  Fans can also purchase tickets through the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets during normal business hours by visiting www.ticketmaster.com or at 1-800-745-3000.
