Despite a furious rally late in the third, the Binghamton Senators were unable to find a way to tie the game and as a result trail the Calder Cup Final two games to one. Game 4 of that series goes in Binghamton tomorrow night.
Having finally had a chance to watch the game on TV, I was quite impressed with the way the Aeros play. They do such a great job of clogging things up in their own end and are making life pretty tough for the BSens. The good news is the Sens finally seemed to be finding their legs late in the game which is a good sign heading into Friday.
I really think that long layoff between the conference final and the final has hurt Bingo early on. Add in the long break between game 2 and 3 and you can see why the Sens are having trouble finding their legs. I predict they will be much better on Friday night.
- It’s still quite early in the process but the Ottawa Senators have begun to work on contracts for RFAs Bobby Butler and Eric Condra. Should be interesting to see what each player gets on their next deal.
- Beginning on June 6, the Sens will launch a new series called Senate Reform (See the teaser under the Video Tab). Few details on the series just yet but apparently it will be modeled off the success of Oil Change and will feature a number of beyond the scene features leading up to the NHL draft. Good on the organization for trying out something like this.
- Draft day prediction: The Sens first pick will be either Ryan Strome or Gabriel Landeskog
- The next head coach of the Ottawa Senators will be Paul Maclean, Kirk Muller, Craig MacTavish or Kurt Kleinendorst. Let’s hear your predictions for the next coach and first round pick.
