B-Sens clinch playoff berth but fall to Hershey 1-0 in OT

BINGHAMTON, NY – Binghamton managed to clinch a berth in the 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs despite falling 1-0 in overtime to their host the Hershey Bears.  Dane Byers notched the game-winning goal 2:24 into the overtime period to give the hosts the 1-0 win.   

Binghamton and Hershey played to a scoreless first period despite the B-Sens getting a late 5-on-3 power-play chance late in the frame.  Andrew Hammond stopped all 10 shots faced in the opening 20 minutes while his counterpart Philipp Grubauer turned aside 13 Binghamton shots to keep the score 0-0.

Following back-to-back scoreless periods, the game headed to overtime and clinched a playoff berth for Binghamton who needed just a point coming into the contest.

Byers beat Hammond between the pads for his 15th goal of the year pushing Hershey into the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Hammond finished the night stopping 38 of 39 shots faced while Grubauer stifled all 41 shots faced to earn the bonus point for Hershey.

Binghamton ends the regular season with three straight home games.  First the B-Sens welcome Toronto on Wednesday before rounding the year against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Norfolk on Friday and Saturday.
