B-Sens Special Teams dominate Rochester

BINGHAMTON, N.Y.  The Binghamton Senators returned to home ice tonight for the back end of their home-and-home series versus the Rochester Americans, burying the visitors by a score of 7-3. Offensively Binghamton was led by Stephane Da Costa who had himself a five point evening (2 goals, 3 assists) while the Sens power-play unit managed four goals on six tries. Nathan Lawson returned to his net-minding responsibilities after his brief stint in Ottawa , stopping 31 of 34 shots to earn his sixth win of the year.

Mike Sdao opened the scoring for the home team with a power-play tally at the 12:13 mark of the first period, Sdaos first goal of the season. Da Costa and Hoffman were credited with the helpers. Rochester goaltender Nathan Lieuwen stopped nine of 10 B-Sens shots faced in the first 20 mins, heading to the locker room down 1-0.

Da Costa notched his first goal of the contest just over three minutes into the middle period, burying the puck past Lieuwen off a great look from Chris Wideman. Just over six minutes later the Sens power-play would strike again, this time Wideman took a rip from inside the blue line putting the hosts up 3-0. Rochester would score two unanswered goals, one at the 12:01 mark of the 2nd and another 1:30 into the 3rd, but from there it turned ugly for the Americans.

Less than one minute after Luke Adam drew the Americans to within one, Darren Kramer scored his second goal of the season starting a flurry of four consecutive B-Sens goals. Da Costa added his second of the night followed by Hoffman and Matt Puempel to push the Sens lead to 7-2 and put the game out of reach for Rochester . Matt Ellis added a power-play goal for Rochester with under a minute to play making the final score 7-3 in favor of Binghamton .

Cody Ceci, Cole Schneider and Mark Stone all finished with two assists apiece. Hoffman turned in a three point performance with a goal and two assists, while Wideman finished off with two points (one goal, one assist). Lawson improved to 6-1-0 on the year with the victory while Lieuwen made 37 saves in the loss dropping his record to 2-2-0.

Binghamton hits the road tomorrow afternoon to finish up their three games in consecutive nights against their East Division rival the Hershey Bears in a 5:00 p.m. matchup. This will be the first of ten meetings this season between the teams.
