Binghamton at the Forty Game Mark

The Binghamton Senators have reached the 40-game mark so it’s time to take stock and see how the team and the players are doing (for the previous ten games go here).  Binghamton went 6-3-1, moving into 1st in their conference/division.  Their 127 goals-for put them tied for 3rd in their conference, while their 96 goals allowed remains best in the conference.

Darren Kramer DNP [ECHL 8-0-3-3 Even]
Brad Peltz DNP [ECHL 1-0-0-0 Even] (injured)
Andre Petersson DNP (injured)
Jared Cowen DNP (injured)

Robin Lehner
 3-1-0 1.82 .947
Ben Bishop 0-0-1 2.59 .928
Nathan Lawson 3-1-0 3.08 .922
Marc Cheverie 0-1-0 4.06 .862 [ECHL 2-0-0 2.72 .913]

A few things stand out: Gryba‘s ridiculous plus/minus rating (+11), Eckford‘s complete disappearance as an offensive presence from the blueline (no points and a -4, tied with Dziurzynski for worst minus on the team over the segment), Da Costa taking over the dominant offensive role in Silfverberg‘s absence, Cannone‘s lack of production (leading to time in the pressbox), and Zibanejad‘s return to the lineup.  Lawson was excellent in the absence of both Bishop and Lehner while Cheverie was not.

Binghamton did well with so many top players lost to the NHL, but the question remains if they can allow so many shots by their opposition and continue to win.
