Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. – The Binghamton Senators failed to string two consecutive wins together for the third time this year as they fell 4-1 to the Albany Devils. Despite holding a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes of play, the Devils notched four straight power-play scores over the final 40 minutes of play to claim the win.

Matt Puempel notched his third goal of the year when he knocked home a rebound on a power-play chance from a Nick Paul scoring chance with just over 1:30 to play in the opening period to give the B-Sens the 1-0 lead heading into intermission.

With Albany working the power play, Matt Lorito snuck one past a diving Matt O’Connor to even the score 1-1 6:33 into the second frame. Corey Tropp made it 2-1 with less than 6 minutes to play in the period to give the hosts the one goal advantage heading into the final break.

Joseph Blandisi recorded his second score of the year 6:44 into the final period off a feed from Lorito to make it 3-1. Reid Boucher pushed the final score to 4-1 with a power-play tally with just over nine minutes to play in regulation.

The B-Sens O’Connor allowed four goals on 38 shots faced while Yann Danis stopped 23 of 24 shots faced for the victory.
Binghamton travels to Wilkes-Barre Wednesday for a 7:05p.m.
