ST. JOHN'S, NL - Casey Bailey scored the game-winning goal in overtime and Chris Driedger made 45 saves as the Binghamton Senators defeated the St. John's IceCaps, 3-2, on Tuesday night inside Mile One Centre.

Max McCormick gave the B-Sens a 1-0 lead in the opening frame on a feed from the goal line to the left of goaltender Charlie Lindgren. Nick Paul brought the puck into the zone and fed Chris Carlisle on the goal line who slid a pass to the front of the net where McCormick got his stick on it. The goal was McCormick's 14th of the year from Carlisle and Paul.

Just 29 seconds later, Jack Rodewald put in his 14th goal of the season for a quick two-goal lead. Kyle Flanagan settled he puck in the offensive zone along the wall and fed Rodewald breaking to the net who lifted the puck over the shoulder of Lindgren for a 2-0 advantage at 9:21 of the first. Assists were credited to Flanagan and Alex Krushelnyski. After the opening period, Binghamton led 2-0 and outshot the IceCaps 11-3.

After no scoring in the second period, Ryan Johnston pulled the IceCaps back within a goal 6:49 into the third period. Max Friberg put the breaks on in the left circle and fed Johnston in the slot who lifted a shot over the shoulder of Driedger. The goal was Johnston's fourth of the year with the lone assist going to Friberg and St John's trailed 2-1.

Chris Terry tied the game for St John's with 1:18 left in regulation. From inside the right wing circle on the power play, Terry let a one-timer go that beat Driedger on the glove side to even the score 2-2 on his 17th of the year to force overtime. In the third period, St. John's outshot Binghamton 26-4 and 44-18 overall.

Bailey scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lift the B-Sens to a 3-2 win over the IceCaps. Chris Rumble brought the puck into the offensive zone and left it for Bailey who ripped a slap shot that Lindgren got a piece of but it went up in the air and just over the goal line. The goal was Bailey's 14th of the season with assists from Rumble and Jason Akeson.

Driedger stopped 45 shots in the win while Lindgren denied 17 in the loss.
