Senators News: October 30th; Binghamton 3, Rochester 1

-Newly recalled Robin Lehner will get the start against the Leafs tonight, but is looks like Nikita Filatov (who was recalled last night) will sit while Bobby Butler will play (or so speculates Sportsnet‘s Ian Mendes, link)

The Ottawa Sun‘s Bruce Garrioch writes about the game against the Rangers (link).  He quotes Milan Michalek talked about the importance of staying positive, “We’ve got great strength on this team and we’re trying to keep positive.  Even if we’re losing, everybody is positive. If we can score one, we know we can get back in it. We know that we’ve done it before. That helps confidence.”  Wojtek Wolski, who hit Daniel Alfredsson in the head, says he thought it was a legal hit.  Paul MacLean said, “It was the right call. Now, it’s up to Brendan (Shanahan) to (decide if there’s further action).”

The Ottawa Sun‘s Jason York talks about the importance of Paul MacLean remaining positive and says that element is a big part of Nashville’s Barry Trotz’s success (link).

-Binghamton continued their winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Rochester.  Jim O’Brien scored his first goal while Pat Cannone and Mike Hoffman scored the others while Mike McKenna got the win.  For the box score go here link, for Joy Lindsay’s game summary go here link.

-Joy Lindsay’s post game quotes are here (link), with Kurt Kleinendorst summarising the game with, “Well, I think for us, it was just, I thought we were a determined group, which is really what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to establish our work ethic. We’re trying to make sure that we’re an honest and hard-working team, and that plays for 60 minutes. And I think, for the most part, we did that. And I think what you can also see is, you know, week by week by week, we’re starting to get some structure to our game, which over time comes. So then those two come together, and then you have an honest, hard-working team that plays with structure, and that’s a pretty good combination.

-The Elmira Jackals lost to South Carolina again (5-3).  Max Gratchev scored a goal, while Louie Caporusso was held pointless.
