The Binghamton Senators will take their four game unbeaten streak on the road today when they travel to battle the Springfield Falcons in a 4:05 faceoff at the Civic Center.
Binghamton is in fifth place in the East Division with 60 points, one behind Norfolk and four behind the struggling Hershey Bears.
The Sens are coming off of a hard fought 2-1 home win over the Providence Bruins, playing most of the game with 13 skaters following Alexandre Giroux’s first period ejection for failing to have his jersey tied down properly.
Binghamton will have the maximum 17 skaters today with the return of defensman Jan Platil and right wing Brian McGrattan from suspensions arising from the February 13th
contest at Syracuse.
Additionally, center Bryson Busniuk has been signed to a 25-game professional try-out agreement.
It will be his second stint this season with the club after taking part in the B-Sens’ training camp.
Busniuk was pointless in three games with Binghamton in January.
In 25 games with Greensboro of the ECHL, Busniuk posted six goals and 15 points.
This afternoon, the Sens will look to even the season series in the final match between Binghamton and Springfield.
The Falcons posted a 3-2 win in Binghamton January 3rd
as Krys Kolanos notched the game-winner with 2:09 remaining in regulation.
Springfield enters the game on a four-game unbeaten streak (2-0-2) following last night’s 4-1 win over Lowell at the Springfield Civic Center, but the Falcons currently reside in the basement of the Atlantic Division, 13 points out of the final playoff berth in the division.
Following today’s game, the Sens make their first trip ever to Verizon Wireless Arena to challenge the Manchester Monarchs Monday night in a 7:05 faceoff.
