Senators News: November 3rd; Binghamton 4, Norfolk 3

-Binghamton topped Norfolk 4-3 last night in a game I saw the majority of (missing the first period).  Lehner picked up the win while Petersson, Jessiman, Hoffman, and Wiercioch scored.  Despite the production no player had a multi-point night; Wiercioch lead the way at +2 while Da Costa lead in shots with six.  Binghamton erased 1-0 and 2-1 deficits and overall looked solid throughout the game.  I thought Chris Wideman played well in his AHL debut, as did Shane Prince.  As I mentioned in Binghamton’s last game I think Pageau has been better when moved away from the SilfverbergZibanejad tandem (they played with Grant last night).  The B-Sens play Norfolk again tonight.

-Bruce Garrioch provides insights via Pierre Dorion in how the Sens conduct their scouting as well as a list of the team’s current scouts.  One thing I found particularly interesting is that Dorion prefers to scout from the corner of the rink rather than up in the pressbox.  It’s also of interest that the Sens have a minimal scouting footprint in Europe (7 of 9 scouts are North American based).

-Elmira topped South Carolina 4-2 last night, with Cheverie picking up the win while Peltz scored and New picked up an assist (Downing was kept off the score sheet).  Peltz‘s two goals in the ECHL double his college production at Yale.  The Jackals face Gwinnett this evening.

-All debate about the Winter Classic is over as the NHL cancelled the game.  It’s not a huge surprise (Stu Hackel’s thoughts are here) as in order for the HBO production that leads into it to move forward a deal would need to be struck very soon and that’s clearly not going to happen.

Adrian Dater looks at the recent political stances taken by NHL players, without delving into the more interesting question of whether the general attitudes have changed since players started to make bigger salaries.

  1. In the elmira game you failed to mention dustin gazleys 4th goal and leads the team in points at 11 in 7 games . he is also a binghapton senators product.

  2. Having watched every Bingo game so far, I agree with all your points. However what is still holding Bingo back is the injuries of Cowen and Gryba. Opposing forwards are getting way too many chances.

    • I agree wholeheartedly that injuries are a major problem for Binghamton thus far.
