-Binghamton fell 5-3 to Syracuse last night in a game I was unable to watch. Ben Bishop faced 43 shots in the loss and would like to have a couple of the goals back. Stephane Da Costa, Jakob Silfverberg, and Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored for Binghamton (Silverberg‘s goal involved one the least excited team celebrations I’ve seen in awhile). Eric Gryba finished +2 on a night when no one else was better than even. Here are the highlights and the summary.
–Luke Richardson talked about the loss:
We got totally outplayed, the first period especially. The second period, once we got our legs going we skated a little bit but our competitive level was nowhere near Syracuse tonight. (In the third period) we skated, we drew penalties, we got pucks to the net. The big part is we came back to the house area in front of our net a little better. On one or two touches were out of the zone and in the first two periods we were spending way too much time in our zone and when you do that you’re tired.
-Elmira faces Cincinnati (15-8-2) tonight; the Cyclones are lead by Michael Pelech (21 points) and backstopped by Brian Foster (12-3-2 2.32 .913).
-As expected Canada pummelled Germany yesterday, winning 9-3. Slovakia should be a tougher test, but I expect Canada to win without too much difficulty.
–Michael Rosenberg offers a humorous look at sports events in 2013.
