The BSens kicked off their season on a winning note on Saturday night, scoring a 2-1 win over the visiting Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins.
Bingo got third period goals from Jakob Silfverberg and Hugh Jessiman and starting goalie Robin Lehner turned aside all but one of the 36 shots he faced on the night.For new Binghamton Senators head coach Luke Richardson, it was exactly the start he was hoping for from his team.
While the BSens were not at their best through the first two periods, Robin Lehner was sharp and held his team in the game.
Great start to the season for Lehner who looks like a motivated goalie to start the season. With Ben Bishop now in Bingo, it should be entertaining to watch those two guys push each other during the lockout.
Binghamton now gets set for their first away contest of the season when they visit the Rochester Americans tomorrow night. Keep an eye on the comment section for any streams of that one.
