Sens End Skid In Rochester 3-1


Denis Hamel’s two goals and a pair of assists from Brad Tapper led the Binghamton Senators to a 3-1 win over the Rochester Americans Friday night in front of 8,231 fans at Blue Cross Arena.

The win ended two franchise-record streaks, a seven-game losing skid and a ten-game road winless streak. (0-8-2).

The Sens power play notched the game’s first goal following a Doug Janik interference call at 16:42 of the first period.

Brad Tapper drew the only assist on the marker when he threaded a feed from the high slot onto the stick of Alexandre Giroux stationed deep in the right circle.

Giroux fielded the pass and patiently waited before slipping a shot between the post and the left leg of Amerks goaltender Ryan Miller (21 saves).

For Giroux, it was his team-leading sixth power play goal and his 19th overall.

Rochester evened the game 5:52 into the middle period when Geoff Peters redirected a Chris Thorburn pass from the right corner behind Sens netminder Billy Thompson (23 saves).

It was then Hamel’s turn to take over in the third period against his former mates.

Hamel created a two-on-one rush when he blocked a Steve Lingren shot and deflected it out to center ice to an awaiting Tapper.

Tapper skated into the right circle with his stick cocked for a shot before whipping a cross ice pass to Hamel, who buried a one-timer at the 3:53 mark to put the Sens on top for good.

For good measure, Hamel sealed the game with his second of the night into an empty net with 35.5 seconds left.

The win, coupled with Wilkes-Barre’s loss in Bridgeport, moved the Senators back into to a fifth place tie with the Penguins.  Both clubs have 62 points, but the Pens have three games in hand on Binghamton.

The shots were even at 24 a side as Binghamton went 1x3 on the power play while holding the league’s best power play unit scoreless in three attempts.

The Sens have a rare Saturday off as they travel to Bridgeport, CT, in preparation for their next game Sunday at 4:05 p.m. against the East Division-leading Sound Tigers.
