Binghamton at the Twenty Game Mark

Binghamton has now played 20 games and it’s time to take a look at how they’ve done over the last 10 (for the previous review go here link).  The B-Sens are 2-8-0, well below their previous pace as the team has suffered greatly from the absence of veterans (Locke, Daugavins, etc).  Their record places them 5th in the division (down from 4th), 15th in the conference (down from 8th), and 28th in the overall standings (down from 13th).  They are tied for 23rd in goals for (down from 14th) and tied for 24th in goals against (down from 20th).  Player’s stats (INJ=games missed due to injury, SCR= scratched, SUS=suspended, NHL=games in the NHL, ECHL=games in the ECHL):

Brian Stewart 0-0-0 ECHL (3-3-0 3.09 .912, GAA and SV declined)

A few thoughts: the team struggles to score due to injuries to key players, with only Mark Parrish, Nikita Filatov and Andre Petersson producing with any regularity.  Secondary scoring has dried up and the team either needs some internal growth or additions up front and on the blueline (the former may simply be the return of Corey Locke).  Corey Cowick has the worst plus/minus on the team through the last ten games, while (among players who’ve played the bulk of the games) Mark Borowiecki and Nikita Filatov are tops with an even rating.  Robin Lehner hasn’t won a game in November.  Kurt Kleinendorst is looking for the right player injection from the ECHL, preferring Louie Caporusso and Jack Downing develop in Elmira (while jettisoning disappointing veteran Shaun Heshka).

With all the injuries Binghamton has suffered I don’t think we have the complete picture of where the team is at yet, but if they can’t get on a hot streak soon they’ll be too far down in the standings to look competitive.
