Rochester 3   Binghamton 2
Milan Bartovicís drive from the slot with 6:07 remaining in the third period snapped a 2-2 tie and sent the Rochester Americans on to a 3-2 win over Binghamton Friday night in front of a season-high crowd of 8,355 at Blue Cross Arena.

Bartovicís game-winner came seconds after Ray Emery (21 saves) stopped Derek Royís bid for the go-ahead marker as he drove down the slot, but was stopped on right pad save by Emery.

The Amerks, unbeaten in their last four (3-0-1), jumped out to a 2-0, first period lead on a pair of 5-on-3 power play goals set up by undisciplined play by the Sens.

With Andy Hedlund sent off for holding at 3:40 of the first, teammate Peter Smrek followed him into the box four seconds later on a tripping call off of the ensuing faceoff.

Rick Mrozik stepped into a shot from the right point that Emery stopped, but Derek Roy was there to clean up on the rebound for 1-0 lead at 5:00 of the opening period.

Following a second Smrek penalty (interference), Steve Bancroft got the gate for slashing to set up the second two-skater edge for Rochester.

Mrozik took just 14 seconds to convert on the power play when he drilled a shot past Emery at 11:41 to put the Amerks up by two.

Binghamton answered back with two unanswered markers in the middle frame to even the contest.

Serge Payer wristed a shot towards the Amerk cage that bounded off of a defensemanís leg.

Captain Chris Kelly picked up the deflection and rammed it into an open net to cut the Rochester lead in half at 2-1 at 4:27.

Just 21 seconds later, Brian McGrattan slipped a steep angle shot through Ryan Miller (21 saves) to tie the contest at 2-2.  For McGrattan, it was his second goal in two nights and his fourth of the season.

Binghamton went 0x5 on the power play while Rochester was 2x6.

The loss was Binghamtonís third straight setback and they will look to snap the streak tomorrow night when they host Syracuse, 7:05 p.m., at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena on Jack Sherman Toyota Stick Night (first 1,000 kids 16 and under).
