B-Sens lapse results in OT loss

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Binghamton Senators failed to hold off their hosts, the Syracuse Crunch, as they fell 4-3 in overtime. Jeff Tambellini notched the game-winner with 1:30 to play in the sudden death frame to give the Crunch the win.

Binghamton jumped out to a 1-0 lead off of Danny Hobbs first goal of the season 3:13 into the opening period after a great feed from Buddy Robinson. Matthew Peca evened the score at one apiece a little past midway point when he beat the B-Sens Matt O’Connor over his glove hand for his third strike of the year. With less than a minute to play in the opening period, Tobias Lindberg wristed home his third of the year on a great stretch pass from Ryan Dzingel to give Binghamton the 2-1 lead going into the first intermission.

The B-Sens restored the two-goal lead with the lone goal of the middle frame when Robinson beat the Crunch’s Adam Wilcox shorthanded with less than five minutes to play in the period.

Syracuse’s power play thrived in the final period scoring twice to force overtime. First Joel Vermin knocked home his second of the year just 2:13 into the stanza before Tye McGinn wristed home his first of the season with less than eight minutes to play in regulation to force overtime.

Tambellini’s overtime game-winner dealt the B-Sens their first loss in only their second sudden death period this season. O’Connor stopped 18 of 22 shots faced in the losing effort while Wilcox corralled 33 of 36 faced to earn the win.
