Binghamton -- I finally had a chance to visit Broome County Arena, home of the Binghamton Senators. It’s an older building with character and the seats are very close to the ice. While watching practice I was instantly noticing Mika Zibanejad, 6th overall pick of the Ottawa Senators in 2011.
NORFOLK, V.A. – The Binghamton Senators made the trek south to Virginia with the hope of being the team to end the rival Norfolk Admirals record breaking 23 game winning streak. The Admirals however broke a tie with a pair of third period goals to take the game 3-1 and stretched their streak to 24.
The Admirals took a 1-0 advantage heading into the first intermission as defensemen Mark Barberio put his team on the board, scoring off a faceoff. The goal came with just 1:45 to go in the opening frame. Evan Oberg and Tyler Johnson recorded assists on the play.
Cap impressive playoff run with city of Binghamton’s first title
HOUSTON, Tex. … The Binghamton Senators put the exclamation point on a remarkable turnaround season by capturing the 2011 Calder Cup championship with a 3-2 win over the Houston Aeros at the Toyota Center in Houston on Tuesday night.
Binghamton, NY - The Houston Aeros grabbed a 2 games to 1 advantage in the AHL Calder Cup Finals this evening in front of a sold out and rockin’ 4,710 maniacs at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.
The Aeros were able to squeak this one out by the score of 2-1 over the host Binghamton Senators courtesy of goals by Jon DiSalvatore and Nate Prosser.
Albany, NY - Binghamton Senators (22-18-2-2) goaltender Barry Brust did not have to stand on his head to shutout the Albany Devils (17-21-0-3) this evening by the score of 3-0. In fact, none of his 26 saves will probably make the highlight reel. The bottom line is when all was said and done his B-Sens found themselves with two more crucial points in the standings than their East Division opponents and he was credited with his 5th shutout of the season and second against Albany.
