Hammond stands tall in another B-Sens win

BINGHAMTON, NY  The Binghamton Senators rode strong goaltending to a 2-1 win over the Rochester Americans Saturday night in front of a crowd of 4,273 fans. Andrew Hammond allowed just a single goal for the second straight night while Cole Schneider and Jean-Gabriel Pageau chipped in goals to lead the B-Sens to its second straight win.

The opening period was a battle won by Hammond and his counterpart Nathan Lieuwen of the Americans as both goaltenders were perfect in the opening twenty minutes of play. Lieuwen stopped all 11 shots faced in the frame while Hammond stonewalled all 12 Amerks tries on net to send the teams to the locker room knotted 0-0.

Schneider broke the scoreless tie 4:07 into the second period on the power play to give Binghamton the 1-0 lead. Stephane Da Costa received a pass and skated towards the left circle where he pushed the puck to Mark Stone. Stone alertly one-timed the feed to Schneider on the crease who buried his 17th goal of the season. The B-Sens carried the slim one-goal advantage into the final intermission.

Pageau extended Binghamton s lead to a pair of goals 7:20 into the third period on an even strength marker. Schneider and Buddy Robinson were credited with the assists on Pageaus 14th goal of the year. The Amerks drew to within a goal when a Johan Larsson shot was tipped into the air and found the back of the Binghamton net to push the score to 2-1, but that was as close as Rochester would get. Hammond turned aside the remaining shots faced in the period to earn his 19th victory of his rookie campaign.

Lieuwen finished with 31 saves on 33 shots faced in the loss while Hammond stopped 38 of 39 shots faced for the victory.

Binghamton travels to Rochester tomorrow evening for the back end of their home-and-home series against the Americans. Fans can tune to Oldies 96.9FM or WINR 680AM to hear the live coverage leading up to the 5:05p.m. faceoff.
