Sens Stumble on Home Ice
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The Binghamton Senators fell 3-1 to the Hershey Bears in the seventh of their eight total meetings this season.
Riley Barber notched his 20th goal of the season 8:27 into the first period to give Hershey the 1-0 lead. Binghamton responded on their first power-play opportunity of the night with just over three minutes to play to even the score 1-1. Phil Varone collected a rebound in front of the Bear's netminder Dan Ellis and backhanded home his 14th strike of the year and his first in a B-Sens uniform to send the teams to the first intermission tied 1-1.
Binghamton outshot the Bears 11-5 over the second period, but Hershey's Riley Barber notched the second period's lone goal to regain a 2-1 lead for the Bears heading into the final intermission.
Hershey added an empty-net tally from Chris Bourque with just over 30 seconds to play in regulation to push the final score to 3-1.
Matt O'Connor allowed two goals on 20 shots faced in the loss while Dan Ellis grabbed his fifth straight win stopping 22 of 23 shots faced.
Binghamton is back on home ice tomorrow when they host the Lehigh Valley Phantoms at 7:05p.m. Tickets are available by calling the B-Sens Executive Office beginning at 8a.m. through the game's second intermission.
