Senators News: October 19th

-Binghamton’s lines for tonight’s game against Hershey: Silfverberg-Pageau-Zibanejad, Hoffman-Cannone-Petersson, Dziurzynski-Grant-Stone, Cowick-DaCosta-Jessiman; Cowen-Benoit, Gryba-Borowiecki, Eckford-Wiercioch; Lehner will get the start.  There are thus no changes to the lineup.

-Binghamton beat Hershey in the pre-season, but this is their first regular season meeting.  The Bears have lost their only game of the season 4-3 to Syracuse with Brayden Holtby taking the loss.  A note of trivia: Binghamton has the youngest team in the AHL while Hershey has the oldest.

Nathan Lawson has accepted his re-assignment to Elmira.

-With additional bodies sent to Elmira the Jackals have released Corey Bellamy, Alec Kirschner, and Nick Niedert.

-The Jackals play Wheeling tonight (here’s a preview).

-I keep trying to avoid CBA talk but journalists keep writing things that amuse me.  Ken Campbell believes the lockout will be protracted because…Gary Bettman seemed upset at a press conference!  If that’s not stretching for sensationalism than I don’t know what is.  I have some sympathy for hockey journalists in scrambling to write something of interest, but I think they are all better off focussing on hard news when it comes to the CBA while exploring the hockey that’s happening rather than this kind of nonsense.
