B-SENS BEST MARLIES IN SEASON OPENER

Netminder Brian Elliott stopped 33 of 34 shots on Friday night against the Toronto Marlies, powering the B-Sens to the season-opening 2-1 shootout victory at Ricoh Coliseum. Center Josh Hennessy buried Binghamton’s lone regulation goal, an unassisted tally at 8:59 of the opening period.  The goal was Hennessy's 50th as a member of the B-Sens.
 
Toronto fired 15 shots at Elliott in the opening stanza, only to have each turned aside. The B-Sens started slow, putting just 6 shots on net through the first 20 minutes of play.
 
Following a scoreless second period, defenseman Staffan Kronwall fed center Tim Stapleton who fired a shot past Elliott to make it a 1-1 contest. 
 
The B-Sens held strong down the final stretch of regulation, fending off a late Toronto power play in the final five minutes.
 
With neither team finding twine in the five-minute overtime session, the game entered the shootout round.
 
Stapleton put home the Marlies first opportunity, to which Brendan Bell answered for Binghamton. In the fifth round of the shootout, Denis Hamel buried the game winner past netminder Justin Pogge. Hamel faked a slap shot from the midslot area, which prompted Pogge to advance out from the net, and then Hamel slipped left and snapped the winning shot home to give the B-Sens their first win of the 2008-09 season.
 
Elliott was named first star of the night for his performance in net. 
 
The B-Sens penalty kill unit was a perfect 7/7 on the night. 
 
Binghamton heads south to Rochester to take on the Americans on Sunday at 6:05 p.m.
