Senators News: December 28th; Binghamton 3, Albany 2

-Binghamton defeated Albany 3-2 tonight in a game I was unable to watch.  The Devils outshot the B-Sens 37-17, but Robin Lehner stood tall and goals from Cole Schneider (with two) and Jakob Silfverberg (with the winner) were enough for the win.  Mark Borowiecki returned to the lineup which put Chris Wideman in the pressbox.  Here’s the box score.

-Elmira defeated an undermanned Cincinnati last night, with Dustin Gazley enjoying a 3 point night and Louie Caporusso picking up an assist.

Nichols looks at the speculation that Mika Zibanejad is suffering from a concussion; the same one he suffered back in April:

With Zibanejad now out of the lineup four plus weeks, we’ve seen the organization blame his absence on the removal of wisdom teeth, strep throat and the flu. Of course, this could be the truth, but the longer Zibanejad remains out of the lineup (and off his skates altogether), the more fans will look to alternative explanations or speculation as to what ails Mika. Obviously there should be some level of skepticism reserved; however, as Scott (@Wham_City) has pointed out, the above account in question (@SensProspects); broke the Jared Cowen surgery news (a Bob Mckenzie report followed 3 hours later). I wouldn’t get too hung up on the anonymity, I don’t think this is a guy/gal talking out their ass. FWIW SteffeG has heard similar things with regards to Mika still suffering from “concussion symptoms”. Professional teams are wary of the “c” word, and will go to great lengths not to use it in public, as anyone who’s followed the Toronto Marlies of late will have noticed.

Allan Muir takes a look the new NHL proposal for those who want to check it out.  He also wonders if Nail Yakupov has shown enough passion so far at the WJC championships…I find criticisms like “indifference” a little too easy to make and I can’t say I’ve noticed that at all in the games I’ve seen.  I do agree with Muir that Canada ought to give Jordan Binnington a start, but it remains to be seen if that will happen.
