B-SENS LACKLUSTER IN 3-0 LOSS TO BEARS

By:
03/03/2012 8:40 PM - HERSHEY, P.A. – The Binghamton Senators fell 3-0 to the Hershey Bears at the Giant Center Saturday night. The B-Sens would be outshot in the game 38 to 17 on the way to being shutout for the sixth time this season and the second time at the hands of the Hershey Bears.

The line of Kyle Greentree, Ryan Potulny and Graham Mink combined on a pair of goals for the Bears to give them a 2-0 lead heading into the first intermission. Greentree opened the scoring, burying a feed from Potulny at 12:44 of the first to put the hometown Bears on the board. Mink drew the secondary assist.

At the 14:50 mark, Potulny snuck the puck through a scrum in front of the B-Sens’ goal, beating Mike McKenna to stretch his team’s lead to two. Mink and Greentree combined for the assists.

The score remained 2-0 Bears until the final minute of play in the second period. With 44.4 seconds remaining on the clock Mink scored to put the Bears ahead by a trio of goals. The goal was Mink’s third point in the game, assisted by Cody Eakin.

The Bears would outshoot the B-Sens 12 to 6 in the final period of play, but McKenna gave his team a chance to generate something, turning aside all 12 of those shots. McKenna ultimately ended the night with 35 saves as he fell to 13-17-1 on the season. His counterpart, Braden Holtby, stopped all 17 shots he faced to improve to 20-14-2. 

The B-Sens ended the night 0-for-3 on the power play, but perhaps the lone positive you could draw from the game was the fact that they were 5-for-5 on the penalty kill, holding the Bear’s top ranked power play at bay.
 
The B-Sens return home tomorrow to host the St. John’s IceCaps at 5:05 p.m. Tickets are $18.50 for side seating, $17.50 for end seating.
