The complete schedule can be found below.
As the May long weekend comes to a close, the Sens fans continue to count down the days until the NHL draft and a day that will be huge for the future of this franchise. Any of a number of scenarios will play out on draft day but either way the Sens will be coming away with a forward with tremendous upside.

Thanks to a rocket shot by Ryan Keller off an overtime faceoff, the Binghamton Senators are headed to the Calder Cup Final!
With a thrilling win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, the Sens swept aside the Charlotte Checkers and will now face off with the winner of Hamilton/Houston in the AHL championship. Congratulations to the players and to the loyal fans in the city of Binghamton.
