Jim O’Brien played the role of overtime hero last night as the Binghamton Senators evened up the Calder Cup final series with the Houston Aeros. The two teams now take a couple days off with Game 3 scheduled for Wednesday night in Bingo.
Games 3, 4 and 5 will all be played in Binghamton.
With last night’s dramatic OT win, the BSens ensure that the latest installment of the SensChirp/RSU road trip is a go! As of now we have a full bus but we are building a wait list for a second one. If we can get enough people to fill that second bus then we’ll have that one on the road too.
So if you haven’t already signed up, click here to get your name on that list!
As Bob McKenzie mentioned on Twitter on Friday, the Sens search for a new head coach is beginning to ramp up. Interviews have already started and are expected to continue into next week. A name that has been tossed around a little bit lately is Pete DeBoer. The former Panther head coach is going to be a guy a few teams look at but the Sens are not one of those teams.
From what I have been told DeBoer will not be interviewed for the position.
Also, some news on one of the Sens prospects in Jakob Silfverberg. He has signed a three deal with the Ottawa Senators. The club was hoping to have him in North America next season but it sounds like he will spend another season over in Sweden. Silfverberg has indicated in the past that he doesn’t think he’s ready to make the jump just yet.
Another strong season in Sweden and he should be ready to make the jump to the NHL.
