Penguins Comeback Gains 4-4 Draw With Sens

The Binghamton Senators built up a 4-1 advantage early in the second period only to see the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins rally for three straight goals in a 4-4 overtime tie Saturday night before 8,338 fans at Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza.

The tie left the Senators two points behind the Penguins in the race for the final playoff berth in the East Division.

Charlie Stephens led the Binghamton attack with two goals, the first of which was shot into the Wilkes-Barre net by Penguin Toby Petersen.

With a delayed penalty call coming against the Sens and Pens’ goalkeeper Andy Chiodo (nine saves in 23:49) heading off the ice for an extra skater, Petersen handled the puck deep in the offensive zone.

As he tried to find defenseman Patrick Boileau at the point, Petersen’s pass missed everybody and found the vacated Penguin cage 1:27 into the game for a 1-0 Binghamton lead.

Stephens got credit for the marker, his 14th of the year, as he was the closest to Petersen when he made the pass.

Recently assigned Tomas Surovy got the goal back at 16:11 when he rang a hard knuckler off the post and past Billy Thomspon (38 saves) to make it 1-1 after twenty minutes.

The Sens came out flying in the middle period, scoring three times in the opening 3:49 to build a 4-1 advantage and knock Chiodo out of the game.

Corey Pecker, playing in his second game with the Sens on loan from Anaheim, drove hard down through the left circle of the Penguins’ zone before dumping the puck to the deep slot.  Joining the rush, Julien Vauclair was on the doorstep to jam in his fourth of the season for a 2-1 lead 1:17 into the second period.

Sixty-seven seconds later, Stephens got his second of the game and 15th on the year when he lifted a Jody Hull rebound past Chiodo at 2:24 to bump the Sens lead to 3-1.

David Hymovitz capped off the three-goal in a 2:32 span converted a Brian McGrattan rebound into his ninth of the year to put Binghamton up 4-1 at 3:49 to send Chiodo to the Wilkes-Barre bench.

Rookie Nick Boucher came on in relief and stopped the only four shots he faced in the final 41:11 of the contest.

Captain Patrick Boileau pulled the Pens to within 4-2 when sent his third of the year past Thompson on a back door play on a picture perfect pass from below the goal line by Eric Meloche with 1:09 left in the second period.

In a third period that saw Binghamton outshot 17-2, Marquis Mathieu made it a one-goal game when he drilled a Guillaume Lefebvre rebound under the crossbar at 13:48 to make it 4-3.

Shane Endicott completed the comeback when his backhander snuck through a mass of bodies from the left wing circle and eluded Thompson for the final goal of the game 3:26 after the Mathieu tally.

The Penguins held a 4-1 edges in shots during the overtime as neither club could pick up the extra point in the standings.  On the night, Wilkes-Barre outshot Binghamton 42-17.

The Sens close out the weekend with a 5 p.m. Sunday contest as they take on the Albany River Rats at Pepsi Arena.  The Rats were blanked by Providence, 4-0, in the Capital District Saturday afternoon.
