Sens Move Point Streak to 14
The Belleville Senators moved its point streak to 14 games after a 5-3 win over the Binghamton Devils Friday night.
Jack Rodewald (2), Joseph LaBate, Jordan Murray and Nick Paul scored for Belleville while Marcus Hogberg made 32 saves. The Devils had markers from Nathan Bastian, John Quenneville and Nick Lappin while Mackenzie Blackwood turned aside 21 shots.
Tied at 2-2 heading into the final 20 minutes, Murray gave Belleville its third lead of the night at 4:38 as on a 4-on-3 power play, Murray beat Blackwood up high on his glove side for his eighth goal of his sophomore campaign.
The lead was 4-2 at 11:46 through a short-handed Rodewald goal as after incredible puck possession by Chase Balisy in the offensive zone, he found Rodewald who undressed Egor Yakolev before beating Blackwood up-high for his second of the game.
Lappin cut the lead to 4-3 with 5:55 to play as a puck found him back door and he was able to solve Hogberg from in-close for his 13th of the year.
It took all of 1:55 for Belleville to get the lead back to two goals though as Paul notched his ninth of the year from the corner on a puck that Blackwood never saw as the Senators made it a 5-3 lead.
The Sens opened the scoring nine minutes into the first period as Rodewald buried a power play goal as he had his stick on the ice to deflect Nick Paul's pass by Blackwood.
The Devils tied the game at 17:08 through Bastian on a messy goal to send the game tied at 1-1 into the first intermission.
Each team also found the back of the net twice in the second frame as Belleville would grab a 2-1 lead at 9:24 as LaBate tipped in an Erik Burgdoerfer point shot for his sixth goal of the season. But the lead was short-lived as Binghamton tied the game just 47 seconds later through Quenneville who was all alone in the slot to rip home his 16th goal.
Rodewald's first goal was the 50th of his AHL career.
Belleville hits the ice again Saturday when they visit the Rochester Americans. The Sens are home next on March 1 against Manitoba and tickets are available.
