B-Sens fall in Wilkes-Barre

WILKES-BARRE/SCRANTON, P.A. – The Binghamton Senators fell to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins 4-3 during their first visit to Mohegan Sun Arena in the 2015-16 season. Cole Schneider tallied two goals in the losing effort while goalie Chris Driedger was handed his first loss in the American Hockey League.

Dominik Simon opened the scoring for the host team just 1:30 into the first period with his third goal of the year and lone goal of the opening 20 minutes. The B-Sens entered the first intermission leading the shots 13-6 despite trailing 1-0.

Kael Mouillierat doubled the Penguins lead after getting a shot past Driedger just 1:31 into the second period. Chris Carlisle cut the lead in half during his AHL debut with his first goal. Carlisle sent a rocket past Tristan Jarry from the blue line off assists from Fredrik Claesson and David Dziurzynski at the 5:00 mark of the second period. Tyler Biggs brought the two goal lead back to the Penguins at the 6:10 mark, but 23 seconds later Cole Schneider responded with a power-play goal just 3 seconds into the man-up advantage. Schneider tied the game at three a piece on his second power-play goal of the game with just over two minutes remaining in the middle frame. Eric O’Dell picked up assists on both of Schneider’s goals while Patrick Mullen got a secondary assist on the B-Sens third tally.

The teams came into the final period tied 3-3, but Jean-Sebastien Dea gave the Penguins the deciding goal at the 10:56 mark.
