Senators News: October 28th; Binghamton 2, Portland 4

-I was not able to watch Binghamton’s game last night which featured a number of oddities: both of the B-Sens goals were scored short-handed (Silfverberg and Cowick); Binghamton outshot Portland 40-31 despite being shorthanded nine times; Jessiman received an ever-embarrassing diving penalty; both Borowiecki and Cowick got into fights; Weircioch lead the team in shots with seven.  Highlights of the game have not yet been posted.

-Binghamton plays Manchester this afternoon, but I haven’t seen a lineup yet [Bishop gets the start; no other changes from last night].  The Monarchs pummelled Worcester 5-1 yesterday and are 4-1-0 (first in the Atlantic Division).  Brandon Kozun leads Manchester in scoring (6 points) while goaltender Martin Jones has started every game thus far.

-Elmira defeated Cincinnati 3-2 in overtime last night; New scored; Peltz (now off reserve) and Downing were both kept off the score sheet.  Here’s the recap.

-It blows my mind that Elmira’s website is better than Binghamton’s–I guess the ECHL has to try harder.

Dave Naylor believes the OHL’s new rule suspending players who exceed more than 10 fights in a year is the reason behind the league’s 32.1% drop from last year’s fighting rate.  I think it’s a factor, but the OHL has other rules that reduce fighting and because of the lockout the league doesn’t have as much space for one-dimensional enforcers.  That cocktail of elements makes it difficult to discern the precise impact of the change–I think next season will be a better indication.
