Norfolk 4   Binghamton 0

The Norfolk Admirals rolled into town and shut down the Binghamton Senators 4-0 Friday night in front of a third straight full house at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.

Igor Radulov, sent down by the Chicago Blackhawks earlier this week, led the way with a pair of goals in his first American Hockey League game of the season.

Radulovís markers came after the Admirals and Craig Anderson (31 saves) kept Binghamton at bay for nearly forty-eight minutes, and for the most part, silencing the 4,717 fans on hand as part of the Sensí eighth sellout of the season.

Following Yorick Treilleís fifth goal of the season on a scramble in front of Ray Emery (32 saves) and Ajay Bainesí 8th of the year at 8:24 of the middle period into an empty net, Radulov went to work to ensure Norfolkís fourth straight victory.

Radulov beat Emery with a right wing drive at 7:58 of the final period on feeds from Pavel Vorobiev and Duncan Keith to make it 3-0.

He finished the night with a pretty rush with fellow Russians Vorobiev and Mihkail Yakubov.  Radulov deked Emery with a quick stick fake and deposited his second of the period with 8:22 left in the game.

The Sens put pressure on the Admirals defense and Anderson early in the opening period, at one point outshooting the visitors 10-4.

But the night belonged to Anderson, who would end up with his third shutout of the season when all was said and done.

Binghamtonís best chance came on the franchiseís second penalty shot in history when Alexandre Giroux was awarded the opportunity at 13:46 of the second period after being tripped up from behind on a breakaway.

With the full house on its feet, Giroux sent the attempt off of the right pad of Anderson, leaving the score at 2-0 Norfolk.

Brad Smyth took the only other penalty shot in Senatorsí history when he was stopped by Hamiltonís Mathieu Garon at 14:55 of the first period in Binghamtonís 8-0 win November 23, 2002.

The Admirals outshot the Sens on the night 36-31.  Neither team converted on the power play with Binghamton going 0x4 while Norfolk was scoreless in five chances.  The Sens penalty kill has now stopped the last 27 enemy power play attempts spanning the last five games dating back to December 20.

The loss, coupled with Wilkes-Barre/Scrantonís 1-0 over Springfield, drops the Senators to fifth place in the East Division with 35 points and just one point up on sixth place Norfolk.

Binghamton is back in action Saturday night at 7:05 p.m. as they entertain former Binghamton Rangers Chris and Peter Ferraro and the rest of the Springfield Falcons in their only visit to the Arena this season.

Itís time Warner Cable/Maines Paper and Foods Character Night with Nickelodeonís Patrick Starfish of SpongeBob Squarepants to appear at Saturday nightís contest.  Tickets are still available at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Arena box office, the Sens executive offices Ė 3rd floor Arena, the Center Ice Team Shop at Metrocenter, or by calling the Sens Hotline (beginning at 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning) at 722-SENS (7367).
