Senators News: March 3rd; Binghamton 4, Toronto 2

-Ottawa faces the New York Islanders (8-11-2) this afternoon; the Isles are lead by John Tavares (25 points) and backstopped by Evgeni Nabokov (8-7-2 3.04 .899).  Robin Lehner gets the start and Andre Benoit draws back into the lineup.

Scott had the scoring chances in the Flyer game 13/22.

Mark Parisi had a lot to say after yesterday’s game and there are a few points I’d add to what he said:
> The Zolnierczyk (who makes his living throwing on-the-edge hits) isn’t about Lundin‘s awareness but because Zolnierczyk left his feet, however, it’s quite likely the NHL will do nothing about it
> I think the line changes made between the first and second period had a negative impact on Ottawa’s play (along with the more obvious impact of only having five blueliners to play)
> Rinaldo is a pest (Mark wasn’t sure)
> I can’t agree with Mark that Kyle Turris played well
> The too-many men penalty was a soft call that rests on the officials, not the players/coaches

-Binghamton defeated Toronto 4-2 yesterday afternoon, with Marc Cheverie making 25-saves to earn the win.  Stephane Da Costa, Fredrik Claesson (his first), Pat Cannone, and Shane Prince scored the goals.  I was able to watch the third period of the game and from what I saw the BSens dominated the play.  Here’s the boxscore.

-Binghamton plays the Marlies (28-19-6) again today; I’d expect Nathan Lawson to get the start.

-Former Sen Bobby Butler is on waivers today.
