Binghamton 3   Albany 3 ot
Playing from behind all night, the Binghamton Senators salvaged a 3-3 overtime draw Friday night at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena when Serge Payer notched the Sens’ second shorthanded goal of the game with 3:07 left in regulation to tie the game.

Albany struck first when Krisjanis Redllihs’ left point drive eluded a screened Ray Emery at 2:55 of the opening period on a River Rat power play.

With the Sens working a power play of their own early in the second period, Craig Darby capitalized on a defensive lapse by the Binghamton defense and converted for a shorthanded goal just :49 into the period to give the visitors a 2-0 lead.

The Sens cut the lead in half with their first shorthanded goal of the year at 13:22 of the middle period as Brooks Laich netted his fifth of the year. Four of Laich’s goals have come on special teams play (3 PPG, 1 SHG) during his rookie campaign.

With the second period winding down, the Rats were able to regain a two-goal advantage when Darby one-timed a centering feed from Maxim Balmochnych past a defenseless Emery with just :25 left in the second for a 3-1 lead.

Binghamton went to work on the comeback trail and drew to within 3-2 on Josh Langfeld’s 7th of the season at 11:18 of the final period.

David Hymovitz, appearing in the line-up after being a healthy scratch the last three games, along with Andy Hedlund, set up Langfeld’s score which moved him into the top spot in the league scoring race with teammate Denis Hamel.  For Hedlund, the helper extended the blueliner’s career-high scoring streak to six games.

Binghamton looked destined for defeat when Dennis Bonvie was sent off for charging with 4:54 left in regulation.  But it provided the home team with the chance to pull of the unlikely comeback with a franchise-record crowd of 4,829 looking on.

With Bonvie’s penalty winding down, a forechecking Serge Payer poked the puck of a Rats stick at the Albany blue line.

Payer came in all alone and buried his third goal of the year behind Scott Clemmensen with 3:07 left in the third and :13 left in Bonvie’s charging call for the Sens’ second man down marker of the night.

It marked the second time in B-Sens history that the club found the net with two shorthanders in the same game.  David Hymovitz and Steve Martins turned the trick in 4-1 win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at the Arena on October 25, 2003.

Binghamton outshot Albany 4-0 in overtime and 43-26 on the night as each club picked up a point in the East Division standings.

The Sens’ 20 points tied idle Hershey for first place in the division with both clubs having played 15 games.
