BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The Binghamton Senators faced the Adirondack Phantoms at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena tonight. After losing two-straight games on the road earlier this week, a determined B-Sens team buckled down and rolled to a 5-2 victory over the Phantoms.
Cole Schneider kicked things off for Binghamton in the opening period as he cashed in on a shorthanded penalty shot at 14:31. Schneider would keep things rolling scoring his second of the night at the 15:53 mark to give the home team a 2-0 advantage. Mark Stone and Stephane Da Costa combined for the assists.
The B-Sens maintained their strength into second as Pat Cannone scored his eighth of the year just 3:12 into the period, courtesy of Louie Caporusso and Shane Prince. Mark Borowiecki would give Binghamton a sizable 4-0 lead after dumping one in on the Adirondack net at 5:11 with the help of Stone and Schneider. The Phantoms would finally get their first tally of the game on the power play as Jason Akeson put Adirondack on the board at 16:19. Danny Syrvret and Garrett Roe drew the helpers on Akeson’s goal.
The Phantoms cut the B-Sens lead in half after Eric Wellwood put the puck away on an early power play opportunity in the third. Jon Sim and Roe earned the assists on the play. Binghamton would take back control as Derek Grant increased his team leading goal total to 18 at 7:35 after receiving helpers from Wacey Hamilton and Borowiecki.
