W-B/Scranton 4   Binghamton 1

The fifth sellout crowd of the year went home disappointed on Dusters Throwback Night Saturday at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena as Wilkes-Barre sent the Binghamnton Senators to their second straight loss, 4-1, in front of 4,717 fans.

The Penguins struck for single tallies in each of the first two periods for what would turn out to be the only offense the visitors would need to end a four-game winless skid (0-2-2).

Michel Ouelett backhanded a rebound under the crossbar on the power play at 16:16 of the first period to give the Pens a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes.  Tom Kostopoulos and Rob Scuderi drew the assists on the goal with Dennis Bonvie in the box for goaltender interference.

Wilkes-Barre doubled their lead when Shane Endicott, left unchecked to the left of the Binghamton cage, slid his own rebound underneath Ray Emery (24 saves in 57:05 of action) 8:54 into the middle frame for what would stand up as the game-winner.

Captain Chris Kelly extended his point-scoring string to four games when he rifled home his sixth of the year past Andy Chiodo (20 saves in 57:05 of action) to cut the Penguins advantage in half at 2-1 just 2:03 into the final period.

Ouellet answered Kelly's score with his second of the night just under four minutes later to restore the Penguins' two-goal lead at 5:50 as he broke behind the Sens' defense, streaking down the slot and slipping the shot past Emery to make it 3-1.

Colby Armstrong closed out the scoring as the Pens worked the power play with Daniel Corso off for hooking at 8:02.

Reid Simpson wired a centering feed through traffic to Armstrong in the deep slot.  Armstrong extended his stick and deflected home his second the year for the final margin of 4-1 at the 9:18 mark.

The rough and tumble contest nearly featured a full scale brawl when Brian McGrattan came to the defense of a fallen teammate who was charged from behind in front of the Penguins bench.

With McGrattan and Tony Tuzzolino engaged with Penguins players both on the ice and from the bench, goaltenders Emery and Chiodo decided to tangle at center ice in a fitting tribute to the old North American Hockey League franchise honored in pre-game ceremonies.

Emery got the upper hand in a bout that featured both combatants trading a series punches while the on-ice officials' attention was focused on the Wilkes-Barre bench.

In all, the clubs combined for 130 PIM on the night.

The Sens return to action Wednesday night when Manitoba makes its first ever visit to Binghamton in a 7:05 p.m. face-off.
