Calder Cup- Game 3

SensChirp June 1, 2011 0

After a lengthy break, the Houston Aeros and the Binghamton Senators are finally back on the ice tonight in Game 3 of the Calder Cup Finals.  The scene shifts to Binghamton tonight in front of what should be a raucous crowd at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.

Puck drops at 7:05PM and all the action can be seen live on SportsnetSENS.

Really looking forward to getting a chance to watch one of these games on something other than a choppy internet feed. Kudos to the guys at Sportsnet for recognizing and opportunity and getting these games on TV.

It feels like ages ago but the BSens are coming off a big OT win on Saturday night in Houston. Jim O’Brien played the role of hero in that won as Robin Lehner and the rest of the Binghamton side continued their unbelievable play in extra time.

Defenceman Derek Smith is expected to return to the Binghamton line up tonight and as expected, Robin Lehner gets the start in goal.

Ottawa Sun writer Bruce Garrioch has weighed in on the Sens coaching situation suggesting that Kirk Muller and Paul Maclean have both been interviewed for the position.  Add those names to a list that already includes Craig MacTavish and Bob Boughner and the names of confirmed interviewees is starting to look pretty good.

Spoke with a contact today who suggested that Maclean had an “excellent interview”.  No confirmation on that but it certainly wouldn’t come as a surprise. The former Detroit assistant has a great track record and a ton of experience.

From the beginning I think I just assumed that Kirk Muller was headed to Dallas or New Jersey but if there is a chance he comes to Ottawa, I think Murray needs to make it happen. Muller really does seem like the perfect fit with this team.
