St. John's 4   Binghamton 3
 

In front of the second sellout crowd of the season at the Arena, the Binghamton Senators fell for the second time in two Saturday nights against the St. Johnís Maple Leafs by an identical 4-3 count.

The 4,750 fans on hand never saw the home team play with lead, but did witness the Sens battle back from separate one-goal deficits only to give the lead right back shortly after netting the tying goals.

A pair of right wing one-timers by the Leafs sandwiched themselves around Chris Kellyís first goal of the season to give St. Johnís a 2-1 lead after the opening 20 minutes.

St. Johnís native Harold Druken, who netted a pair of goals against the Sens in last weekís 4-3 victory, got the ball rolling again in this one.  Druken one-timed a Kyle Wellwood cross ice feed past Billy Thompson at 5:37 for the gameís first goal.

Kellyís follow-up on his own rebound tied the game at 1-1 at 10:54, Druken then set up Clarke Wilm in the right circle.  Wilm buried his second of the year just 40 seconds after Kellyís marker to regain the lead.

After a scoreless second period, loose play in the Leafsí end gave the Sens the chance to even the score just under five minutes into the final period.

Following several failed clearing attempts, a bouncing puck landed on the stick of Alexandre Girouxís stick.  Giroux held the puck momentarily before slipping one upstairs for his first of the year and a 2-2 tie at 4:55.

Ben Ondrus and Dennis Bonvie were then sent off for matching minors, and with the clubs skating 4-on-4, the Leafs regained the lead 1:06 after Giroux had pulled the Sens into a tie.

Wilm placed a perfect shot between the pads of Thompson for his second of the night at 6:01 for a 3-2.  Just 56 seconds later, Brad Leeb raced in on a breakaway and was originally stopped by Thompson, but stuffed the rebound home for the goal that would stand up as the game-winner at 6:57.

Binghamton converted on a two-man power play with Marc Moro (holding) and Clarke Wilm (closing his hand on the puck) in the box for the Leafs.

Defenseman Andy Hedlund one-timed a Denis Hamel pass home from the left circle at 9:43 to draw the Sens to within one, but that would close out the scoring in the contest.

The Sens had a late power play chance that became a two-skater edge with Thompson pulled an extra attacker.

Robb Palahnuk was ticketed for slashing with 1:39 left regulation and it appeared that the Sens were destined to tie the game in the midst of firing a season-high 18 third period shots on goal.

Despite the game-long shaky goaltending of Jamie Hodson, Binghamton was unable to send the game to overtime and took its first regulation home loss of the year.

Hodson and Thompson made 31 saves each as the Leafs outshot the Sens 35-31.

Both clubs were 1x6 on the power play.

Binghamton remained in first place in the East Division with a record of 7-3-1-2, good for 17 points and a one point advantage over the second-place Hershey Bears.

The Sens are next in action Monday night in a special pre-Veteranís Day contest against the Syracuse Crunch, 7:05 p.m., at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.  Itís Press and Sun Bulletin Night with the newspaper sponsoring the Score-4 Fun Packs (4 tickets, hot dogs, and sodas for $49.00), Kidís Night ($2.00 off any ticket for kids 11 and under), and Readerís Appreciation Night ($2.00 off coupons in the newspaper).
