Senators News: March 4th; Binghamton 0, Hershey 3

Rob Klinkhammer (35-12-23-35 -5) was recalled by the Sens yesterday and despite declining production this is a reward for his play.  This will be Klinkhammer‘s second NHL call-up as he played one game for Chicago last year and the plan is for him to play with Daniel Alfredsson and Kyle Turris in the hopes of generating secondary scoring.  Zack Smith will be healthy scratch for the first time this season (a decision I don’t like) and Kaspars Daugavins will remain out of the lineup.  Unsurprisingly, Robin Lehner will get the start.

Robin Lehner is keeping a level head about the hype surrounding him, “I heard it from one of the guys, I haven’t really seen it. You’ve got to put a little perspective on it, too. I’ve played four games this season. I’m happy with my performance in the four games, but it’s not there yet, to be that hyped. I understand why it’s hyped. I’m a really young goaltender. I feel like I’ve been playing solid, okay … it’s just the way it is here in Ottawa. I don’t mind it, and I don’t mind it when it goes bad, either. One bad game here and we’ll see if Lehn-sanity sticks. It probably won’t. These guys (Senators) have been teaching me lots about it. I don’t try to get too high when I’m good and too low when I’m down. You can hate me, but never break me. I know how it is. I know my role here. I’ve been following Craig and this team for the whole season. He’s been great. He’s been carrying this team. He has 29 wins this year. He’s been rock solid. I’m just trying to be here for this team right now. If I get the chance, I’ll just try to play my best, so we might get some points out of it. When he comes back, I’m not expecting anything. We’ll see what happens. Whatever they think is best for me, I’ve got to trust them and do what they say.”

-Binghamton was completely dominated by Hershey last night, outshot 38-17 with Mike McKenna taking the loss.  Pat Cannone lead the team with five shots and Patrick Wiercioch extended his pointless streak to 10 games.  Here’s the box score and Joy Lindsay‘s game summary.  Ben Bishop will start today against St. John’s.

-Elmira won 4-1 last night, with Brian Stewart earning the win Corey Cowick held off the scoresheet (Louie Caporusso remains out of the lineup).  Bobby Raymond had an assist in Florida’s 5-4 win.
