Penguins Add To Sens Woes

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins defeated the Binghamton Senators 7-4 Wednesday night in front of the 130th consecutive sold out crowd at Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza. 

The win allowed the Penguins to take over sole possession of fifth place in the East Division, two points up on the struggling Senators.

The loss was the Sens’ seventh straight and extended the club’s winless skid on the road to ten games (0-8-2).

The Penguins opened the scoring on their second power play chance in the opening period as Andy Hedlund was sent off at 16:21 for high sticking Wilkes-Barre’s Eric Meloche.

Patrick Boileau let a shot go from the right point that deflected off of Toby Petersen’s stick and past Ray Emery (12 saves in 31:07) for a 1-0 lead.

Jan Platil evened the game with his first professional goal, a drive from the slot that beat Pens netminder Sebastien Caron (19 saves) at 3:16 of the second period.

A series of penalties left Binghamton shorthanded for a seven-minute stretch following Platil’s goal and Wilkes-Barre took full advantage to score three power play markers to take control of the contest.

Following minor calls against David Hymovitz and Jody Hull, Emery was booted from the game with a match penalty following a high stick on Michel Ouellet at 11:07.

Colby Armstrong, Matt Hussey, and Ouellet all converted in a 4:11 span on back-up goaltender Billy Thompson (8 saves in 29:53) to provide the Penguins with a 4-1 cushion after forty minutes.

Thompson took the loss in net, allowing six of the Penguins’ seven goals.

The Senators got a pair of their period goals, one each from Denis Hamel and Arpad Mihaly.  For Hamel, it was his team-leading 23rd goal and team-high 51st point.

With his match penalty, Emery is suspended indefinitely until a review of the incident is conducted by the American Hockey League.

Binghamton is next in action as they travel to Rochester Friday night for a 7:35 face-off with the Americans.
