Late Goals Doom B-Sens

BINGHAMTON, N.Y.  The B-Sens failed to complete a perfect weekend as they fell to the visiting Adirondack Phantoms 4-1 in their sixth game in nine nights.  Andrew Hammond stepped in for Binghamton s starting goaltender Nathan Lawson after Lawson left the game with a lower-body injury early in the first period.  Hammond stopped 24 of 26 shots faced in the loss.   

Adirondack struck first 3:22 into the opening period when Kris Newbury buried a low slap shot past Lawson for his tenth goal on the season.  The Phantoms doubled their lead on a power-play goal with less than two minutes to play.  Jason Akeson stick-handled his way through Binghamton s penalty-killing unit and blasted his tenth marker of the year past an outstretched Hammond giving the visitors a 2-0 lead heading to the locker room.

The second period was a penalty filled frame with three fights and not much offense for either team.  B-Sens captain, Mark Borowiecki, dropped the gloves twice during the middle stanza attempting to fire up his teammates.  Andre Petersson tallied his eleventh goal on the year with less than three minutes to play in the period, cutting the Phantoms lead to one.  Petersson took a pass from defenseman Danny New and maneuvered through Adirondack s defense before ripping a wrist shot over the glove side of Phantoms goaltender Yann Danis.  Hammond stopped all 12 Adirondack shots to hold the Phantoms lead to one entering the final period of regulation.

Despite having three power-play opportunities during the final 20 minutes of play, Binghamton came up empty.  With less than a minute to play Akeson notched his second goal of the game on an empty B-Sens net before Rob Bordson pushed a second insurance goal past Hammond with just over 15 seconds remaining to move the final score to 4-1.  Akeson finished with two goals and an assist to lead Adirondack .  Danis stopped 33 of 34 shots faced to earn the games first star and his fifth victory on the year.  Binghamton finished 0 for 8 on the man advantage while the Phantoms converted once on three power-plays.

Binghamton travels to Adirondack Wednesday night for their final meeting of their six-game season series.  The B-Sens will be back on home ice Friday, January 17 for a 7:05p.m. tilt versus the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.  Tickets for Friday are available by calling the Binghamton Senators Executive Office at (607) 722-7367 or stopping in between 9:00a.m. and 5:30p.m.  Fans can also purchase tickets through the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets during normal business hours by visiting www.ticketmaster.com or at 1-800-745-3000.
