Senators News: December 22nd; Binghamton 5, Rochester 6 (SO)

-Binghamton lost 6-5 in a shootout last night as the Rochester Americans broke Ben Bishop‘s personal win streak while overcoming a two-goal deficit in the third period.  Jessiman, Eckford, Silfverberg, Benoit, and Wiercioch scored for the B-Sens.  Here are the highlights.

-Binghamton plays Rochester again tonight, presumably with Lehner getting the start.

Darren Kramer has been called up to Binghamton.  His last game played with Elmira was November 30th (where he was injured).

Hockey’s Future takes a look at the prospects on the upswing and on the decline and Robin Lehner makes the former list:

Few goaltenders have had as strong a start to the 2012-13 season as Robin Lehner. The 21-year-old Swede, who is now in his third professional season, is 9-4-1 through 15 starts, and his 1.99 goals against average and .941 save percentage are among the best in the AHL. He is also the main reason why the Senators as a team are allowing only 2.43 goals-per-game, among the fewest in the league. The numbers are even more impressive considering Lehner plays behind a defense that allows an average of over 30 shots per game.

-Elmira lost 5-1 to Wheeling last night with none of the Binghamton signees factoring in on the Jackals only goal and Cheverie did not play.  The teams play again tonight.
