TORONTO, ONT.  – Trailing 4-1 in the third period, the Binghamton Senators scored seven goals for an 8-4 victory over the Toronto Marlies in front of 13,958 at Air Canada Centre on Saturday afternoon.
Kerby Rychel put the Marlies on the board in the first period during a five-on-three man advantage. Cal O’Reilly played a pass from the right side down to Rychel at the side of the crease and he jammed the puck under the pads of Chris Driedger for the 1-0 lead. The goal was Rychel’s 17th of the year with helpers from O’Reilly and Seth Griffith.
Toronto took a two-goal lead later in the opening frame. Driedger made the original save but the rebound went out to the slot where Travis Dermott fired in his fifth of the year on the secondary chance. Mike Sislo and Andreas Johnsson picked up the assists on Dermott’s goal at 12:30. Toronto held a 2-0 lead heading into the first intermission and outshot the B-Sens 15-6.
Griffith converted in the second period to put the Marlies up 3-0. Jack Rodewald’s stick broke in the defensive zone and Griffith took advantage of that and fired the puck by Driedger from inside the left wing circle. The goal was Griffith’s fifth of the season from Brett Findlay and Andrew Nielsen at 9:07 of the middle frame.
Binghamton answered back after a faceoff win by Nick Paul. In the left wing circle, Paul pulled the puck back to defenseman Chris Carlisle who played a shot through traffic and beat goaltender Antoine Bibeau for his third of the year. Paul picked up the only assist on the goal at 10:01 of the second.  
Sislo took advantage of another power play to get Toronto’s three-goal lead back later in the period. Sisle teed up a one timer from the left wing circle and beat Driedger on his right side for the 4-1 lead with 3:13 left in the second. Griffith and O’Reilly had the assists and Binghamton trailed 4-1 after two periods. Toronto held the shot advantage 24-16.
Trailing 4-1, Binghamton erupted for seven goals in the third period for the comeback. While on a two-man advantage, Phil Varone found Jason Akeson in the slot who blasted a shot over the glove of Bibeau and just under the cross bar. The goal was Akeson’s 15th of the year just 2:40 into the final period with Varone and Francis Perron taking the assists.
Just 17 seconds later, defenseman Ben Harpur skated across the blue line and wristed the puck towards the net that caught a body in front of the crease and rolled by Bibeau and over the goal line to pull the B-Sens back to a 4-3 deficit. Harpur’s tally was his second of the year with assists from McCormick and Paul at 2:57.
The flood gates opened when Akeson went top shelf again for his 16th of the year and second of the game to tie the game 4-4. Akeson’s goal came at 12:15 of the final period, unassisted.
McCormick helped put the B-Sens out front for the first and final time of the night. After an interception, McCormick’s bid was stopped but Paul slammed in the rebound for his 11th of the year and a 5-4 lead at 13:50 with assists from McCormick and Mike Blunden.
Chad Nehring made it a two-goal lead just 11 seconds later as he scored his fourth of the season to give the B-Sens a 6-4 advantage. Brandon Gormley recorded the lone assist on the goal at 14:01.
The Senators tacked on two more goals late in the game for a seven-goal third period and 8-4 win. Jack Rodewald scored his 17th of the year at 16:07 and Nehring potted his second of the game and fifth of the year at 18:26.
Driedger stopped 23 of 27 in the victory while Bibeau took the loss, stopping 26 of 33.
