Senators News: October 21st; Binghamton 5, Syracuse 6

-The Binghamton Senators lost a weird game to Syracuse last night, a game in which they built up a 5-0 lead in dominating fashion and then lost in overtime due to some awful goaltending from Nathan Lawson.  The officiating wasn’t great (Dave Schreiber described Jamie Koharski as incompetent), but ultimately wasn’t the main reason behind the team’s loss.  There was some attempt to blame Robin Lehner for getting into a fight mid-period (most of the post-game questions to Richardson were about that), as if that forgives the team and his backup for yielding 6 goals in 35 minutes.  Cannone, Hoffman, Eckford, Grant, and Borowiecki scored for Binghamton.  Here are the game highlightsLuke Richardson said they failed to come together as a team and that the lesson learned was to play a full sixty minute game.

-Binghamton plays Hershey shortly; no update on the lineup yet.  Jon DiSalvatore and Jeff Taffe currently lead the Bears in scoring.  Hershey lost a wild game 8-7 against Rochester last night.
