FRIDAY, DEC. 26 vs. SYRACUSE (3-2 W): Binghamton won its fourth straight against Syracuse on Friday night with two goals off the stick of Denis Hamel, giving the veteran winger 250 for his AHL career.  The top-ranked B-Sens power play converted on three of eight chances, two of them on a 5-on-3 advantage.  Ryan Shannon netted his eighth of the year for Binghamton’s opening goal.  Hamel buried his first goal of the night midway through the second period to tie the game a 2.  He followed with the game-winning goal in overtime, a deflection off a Matt Carkner shot to secure the B-Sens win.  Carkner and fellow blueliner Mattias Karlsson collected three assists each; career-highs for both defensemen.  Netminder Brian Elliott stopped 32 of 34 shots to secure his 15th win of the season.
