Game Report

The Belleville Senators and Binghamton Devils met up once again Friday night in the second game of their home-and-home series. The Senators beat the Devils 3-2 in a shootout in the first game of the series, Binghamton were looking to avenge that loss on their home ice.

The opening period was all Binghamton in the early going. Just over five minutes into the frame, John Quenneville wired a well-placed wrist shot past Marcus Hogberg to make it 1-0. Four minutes later, Brandon Baddock added to the Devils lead with a wrist shot from the right side making it 2-0. After one period of play, Binghamton held a two-goal lead over Belleville.

The second period brought more of the same. The Senators poor discipline cost them as Binghamton scored three power play goals in the frame. It was Michael Latta scoring after a big save from Eddie Lack on Mike Blunden to make it 3-0. Then Quenneville scored his second of the night on a one-time blast. Jacob MacDonald scored just a minute after the Quenneville goal to make it 5-0. After 40 minutes, the Devils led 5-0,

In the third period the Senators did manage to spoil Lack’s shutout after Christian Jaros wired home his second of the season to make it 5-1, but the Devils scored their fourth power play goal of the night courtesy of Nick Lappin to make it 6-1 and put this game away.

The Senators dropped the second game of this home-and-home series with the Devils. They were thoroughly dominated by Binghamton and their poor discipline did them no favors. Belleville gets right back at it Saturday night when they visit the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
