Grant sends B-Sens fans home in extra session

BINGHAMTON, NY – The Binghamton Senators continued its overtime dominance with a 5-4 win over the visiting Hershey Bears.  Derek Grant scored 3:39 into the extra period to give the B-Sens its ninth win in overtime.  With the win, Binghamton needs just a single point to clinch a 2014 Calder Cup Playoff berth. 
 
The B-Sens took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission thanks to Chris Wideman’s 9th goal of the season scored at the 17:43 mark.  Nathan Lawson, who started in net for Binghamton , stopped all 17 Hershey shots faced in the period while David Leggio turned aside eight of nine B-Sens chances. 
 
Hershey evened the score up 1-1 just over a minute into the second period when Nate Schmidt collected a B-Sens turnover and beat Lawson over the glove for his second marker of the season.  Binghamton retook the lead when Mike Sdao pushed home a loose puck at the 11:35 spot of the frame.  Less than 60 seconds later, Matt Puempel recorded his 29th goal of the year off assists from Shane Prince and Ryan Dzingel to move the score to 3-1. 
 
Hershey managed to tie the score 3-3 on back-to-back goals from Dane Byers and Michael Latta putting the teams deadlocked going into the final intermission.
 
The Bears took their lone lead of the evening just 3:58 into the final period when Casey Wellman beat Lawson for his 19th tally of the year. 
 
Less than 30 seconds later, David Dziurzynski evened the score at 4-4 when he managed to redirect a shot from Derek Grant past Leggio for his 11th goal on the year.  Lawson went to the locker room favoring his knee following Dziurzynski’s goal and yielded goaltending duties to Andrew Hammond for the remainder of the game.
 
Binghamton needed just two shots on net in the extra frame to steal the bonus point and remain in first place in the East Division.    
 
Despite coming into the game cold, Hammond played solid stopping all nine shots faced to earn his 24th victory of the year. Derek Grant finished with a goal and an assist to lead Binghamton while David Kolomatis and Ryan Potulny ended their nights for Hershey with a pair of helpers.  Leggio stopped 26 of 31 shots faced as he fell to 22-18-3 on the year.
 
Binghamton travels to Wilkes-Barre tomorrow night for a 7:05p.m. matchup versus the Penguins before heading to Hershey on Sunday for a 5:00p.m. puck drop against the Bears.  Fans can listen to both games live on Oldies 96.9FM or WINR 690AM.
