We at Fox 40 often chuckle at the structuring of the AHL schedule, how the Binghamton Senators play teams like Syracuse, Hershey, and Wilkes-Barre 10 or so times, but only play Toronto twice. If that sounds confusing, try and figure out the B-Mets schedule in the Eastern League.

Tuesday's game is the first of 22 games between the two teams despite playing in different divisions. That may sound fine, but for perspective, the B-Mets only play division rivals Trenton and Reading eight and six times respectively. Go figure.
Before Tuesday's game, B-Mets manager Pedro Lopez talked about the approach to beginning such a long season series against a tough team like the Sea Wolves.
