Bridgeport 5   Binghamton 4
Bridgeport took advantage of defensive miscues to build a 4-1 second period lead and then held on for 5-4 win over Binghamton Thursday night in front of 4,198 fans at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.

The win gave Bridgepot sole possesion of second place in the East Division and extended the Sound Tigers' unbeaten streak to eleven games (10-0-1). The club also remained unbeaten in regulation for a franchise record 13 straight time (11-0-1-1).

Ray Emery (seven saves in 29:49) misplayed a Ben Guite dump-in off of his pad and the loose puck was poked home by Graham Belak for his first professional goal 13:05 into the game to give the Sound Tigers a 1-0 lead.

Just 1:25 later, Binghamton tied the game as Daniel Corso rifled home a rebound, his fifth of the season, which was set up by Denis Hamel and Alexandre Giroux for a 1-1 deadlock after 20 minutes.

Bridgeport then went on a three-goal run in the opening 9:47 of the middle period to build its largest lead of the night.

The fireworks began early as Eric Manlow chipped the puck off of defenseman Peter Smrek's stick and created a 2-on-1 heading the back in to the Sens' end.

Mattias Weinhandl raced in on the right wing and fired a cross-ice feed to Jeff Hamilton. Hamilton reeled in the pass and slammed it into a half open net for his league-leading 14th goal and a 2-1 lead at 1:13.

Christoph Schubert then coughed up the puck inside his own line and Kevin Colley wheeled and fired a high shot past Emery at 6:23 to bump the visitor's lead to 3-1.

Emery's night came to an end at 9:47 when Rob Collins stuffed a power play goal between the pads of the Sens' netminder to give the Sound Tigers their largest lead of the game at 4-1.

David Hymovitz trimmed the lead to 4-2 with 4:11 left in the period when he converted a Bridgeport turnover into his first shorthanded of the season (second overall). Hymovitz pulled Sound Tiger Dieter Kochan down and out and put a backhander high into the net to bring the Arena crowd back to life as the second period came to a close.

Binghamton's comeback continued at 7:49 of the third when Tony Tuzzolino pried the puck off of the end boards and fed Brian McGrattan who snapped his third of the year past Kochan to pull the Sens to within 4-3.

Alexandre Giroux made it a brand new game at 4-4 when he slipped a point blank shot around the left leg of Kochan with 6:50 remaining in regulation, but that woudl prove to be the Sens' final hurrah on the night.

With overtime looming, Rob Collins sent a feed over to Cail MacLean who partially fanned on the shot as he sent a change of pace one-timer towards the net.

Billy Thompson (six saves in 28:57) looked to overplay the puck in shifting from his left to right as the shot eluded the rookie netminder. MacLean goal, his first of the year, held up as the game-winner and tagged Thompson with the loss.

Binghamton outshot Bridgeport 34-18.

The Sens were held scoreless on the power play in three attempts (all in the first period) and have not scored a man-up goal in three of their last four contests while the penalty kill went 4x5.

Binghamton hits the road for its first visit of the season to Rochester Friday night at 7:35 p.m. The Sens return home Saturday on Jack Sherman Toyota Stick Night with the Syracuse Crunch in town for a 7:05 p.m. draw. All kids 16 and under at Saturday's game will receive a hockey stick courtesy of Jack Sherman Toyota.
