B-Sens grind out home win to bust skid

BINGHAMTON, NY  The Binghamton Senators snapped its six-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the visiting Norfolk Admirals on Friday night.  Andrew Hammond played strong in net for the B-Sens stopping 30 of 31 shots faced to earn his 18th win of the season.

David Dziurzynski started off the scoring for Binghamton 6:19 into the opening period.  After Norfolk s goaltender Brad Thiessen made a save on a shot from Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Dziurzynksi skated to the net hard and chipped in the loose rebound for his seventh goal of the year.  Binghamton doubled its lead to 2-0 at the 14:28 mark of the frame when Stephane Da Costa pushed home another loose puck.  Mark Borowiecki and Chris Wideman were credited with the assists on Da Costas 15th marker of the year.

Norfolk shrunk the Sens lead to 2-1 just thirteen seconds into the second period on a well placed wrist shot from Devante Smith-Pelly.  Thiessen stopped all 11 shots faced in the middle frame while Hammond stopped 10 of 11 to keep the score at 2-1 heading into the final period.

Norfolk failed to best Hammond through the final 20 minutes of regulation despite having three power-play chances in the third period. Pageau converted on an open net opportunity with just over a minute to play to move the final score to 3-1.

Pageau finished with a goal and an assist to lead the B-Sens offensively.  Thiessen fell to 3-3-2 allowing three goals on 34 shots faced.

Binghamton will be back in action tomorrow when they host the Rochester Americans at 7:05p.m.  Tickets are available by calling (607) 722-SENS (7367) or stopping by the B-Sens Executive Office between 8:00a.m. and the second intermission.  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.
