B-SENS BITE THE SHARKS

The Binghamton Senators buried four power-play goals on their way to a 5-4 win over the Worcester Sharks on Saturday night at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena. Netminder Brian Elliott stopped a career-high 48 shots, including 21 in the final period to backstop the B-Sens to their second straight home victory.
 
The scoring started early for the B-Sens when center Ilya Zubov skated the length of the ice, splitting the Sharks defense in their zone and snapping a wrist shot passed Sharks goalie Kyle Jones at 6:17. Defenseman Brendan Bell assisted on the marker, extending his point streak to eight games.
 
Bell continued two minutes later with his fourth tally of the year. Bell took a cross-ice pass from Ryan Shannon and buried a slap shot past Jones from the left point. Rookie Zack Smith provided a timely screen to distract Jones. With the marker, Bell has nine points (4+5) in his last eight games. 
 
Ryan Shannon also extended his point streak to eight games (4+8). Defenseman Mattias Karlsson also assisted, extending his assist streak to three games (0+3).
 
Smith gave Binghamton a three-goal advantage in the final minute of the first period with a rebound goal off a Zubov shot from the point. With the B-Sens operating on a 5-on-3 power play, Zubov took a drop pass from Shannon along the right boards and fired a shot to the top of the crease. The B-Sens crashed the net, and Smith tapped in the puck to notch his team-leading eighth goal of the season.
 
Still on a power play entering the second period, the B-Sens pick up right where they left off with Karlsson scoring his first goal of the season 47 seconds into the man advantage on a back-handed pass from Shannon. Less than four minutes later, the B-Sens crashed the net to follow up on left winger Greg Mauldin’s shot from the left post.  Forward Chaz Johnson got the rebound, passed the puck to an open center Cody Bass, whose shot found the back of the net, earning the center his first goal of the season.
 
Elliot’s hopes of shootout, though, were ended at 18:10 of the middle period when Worcester’s left wing Lukas Kaspar scored from the top left post after a B-Sens turnover,
 
Binghamton almost gave up its four goal lead during the third period when the Sharks scored three goals in span of less than 10 minutes.  Worcester right wing Riley Armstrong took advantage of a B-Sens roughing penalty at 6:53, scoring from the left post. Two minutes later, center Cory LaRose took advantage of a B-Sens turnover deep in the zone and followed his own shot for Worcester’s third goal.                        
Armstrong earned his second goal of the night six and half minutes later on the thirteenth power play of the game, slapping a shot through traffic and off Elliott’s left shoulder.
 
Shannon tied a career-high with three assists on the night while Zubov tied a career-high with three points (1+2), the second time this season he’s notched three points. 
 
The B-Sens return to home ice next Friday when the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins visit the Arena for the first time this season.
