Binghamton 2   Bridgeport 0

The Binghamton Senators made it 2-for-2 against Bridgeport over the last six days, dumping the Sound Tigers 2-0 Wednesday night in front of 4,717 New Year’s Eve fans at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.

The clubs treated the seventh sellout of the season in Binghamton to playoff style hockey that was a welcome relief to the penalty-laden 5-1 victory over Philadelphia Sunday.

Star of the game honors went to goaltender Ray Emery, who picked up his second shutout in as many starts against the Sound Tigers, as he stopped all 29 shots.

With 30 saves in last Friday’s win over Bridgeport, Emery has stopped the last 59 Sound Tiger shots in 122:41 of action and has allowed just three goals in his last four starts overall.

Denis Hamel notched both Senators goals, with the game-winner coming near the midway point of the first period.

With Chris Kelly off for holding and the Sound Tigers working the power play, Eric Manlow fell down at the left point and turned the puck onto the stick of Hamel.

Hamel raced in on a breakaway and snapped his team-leading 13th of the year past Rick DiPietro, making his second start in as many night on a conditioning assignment, to give the Sens a 1-0 lead.

That score would hold until Hamel found the empty net with DiPietro on the bench for an extra attacker at 19:59 of the third period for the final margin.

Bridgeport pressured Emery in the final period, outgunning the Sens 14-5, but Emery never faltered in picking up his 11th win of the season and lifting Binghamton into a fourth place tie with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (35 points each).

On the night, the Sens had a 30-29 shots advantage.  The power play was held off the board for the first time in five games while the penalty kill remained strong, extinguishing all six Sound Tiger man-up chances.  Over the last four games, the Sens penalty kill is a perfect 20-for-20.

Binghamton, winners of three of their last four, welcome Norfolk to the Arena Friday night for a 7:05 p.m. faceoff.

The Admirals come into the weekend just three points behind Binghamton in the East Division following their 3-2 win Wednesday night in Albany.
