If you were late tuning into Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final between the Binghamton Senators and the Charlotte Checkers you certainly would have missed a lot. It was a sloppy opening period that saw the team’s combine for seven goals and Bingo held a 4-3 lead through twenty.
It was a lead they would never relinquish, on route to a 7-4 win in Game 1.
It certainly wasn’t the start that Robin Lehner was hoping for as he was lifted in favour of Barry Brust after the opening frame. Brust played well in relief but Kurt Kleinendorst indicated he will go back to Lehner in Game 2 tonight.
The BSens offence was just too much in this one as they got goals from seven different players including Locke, Daugavins, Benoit, Butler, Wick, Condra and Potulny. It’s that kind of scoring depth that is making Bingo an extremely difficult team to play against in these playoff.
Binghamton has now won seven straight on the road in the Calder Cup playoffs. Game 2 of that series goes tonight in Charlotte.
- I passed this along on Twitter last night but I thought I would share it here too. I don’t know if this is legit or not but here is a preview of the crest that will appear on the Sens new uniform next season. Seems as though this would be the patch that appears on the shoulder of the jersey. What do you think?
