The IceCaps got back to work Friday evening in their second-to-last home series of the season, against the Binghamton Senators. In the first period, Daniel Carr was hit hard into the boards just to the left of Binghamton goaltender Matt O’Connor. This resulted in an IceCaps man advantage. With the extra man, Chris Terry beat O’Connor for his team-leading 26th goal of the season.
St. John’s had a great chance to expand on their lead when Jeremy Gregoire set up Yannick Veilleux in front of the net, but O’Connor stoned Veilleux. That save proved to be huge as Casey Bailey scored shortly thereafter to tie the game 1-1. The teams headed to the dressing room knotted at one apiece.
The second period was a little more eventful in terms of goal scoring. The Senators struck first just under two minutes in when Colin White outwaited Yann Danis for his first professional goal, giving Binghamton their first lead of the night.
Later in the period it was White taking a delay of game penalty and the IceCaps took advantage. Terry notched his second goal of the night to tie the game back up. But after a questionable Stefan Matteau charging penalty, Brandon Gormley beat Danis to restore the Binghamton lead. After 40 minutes of play, the Sens led 3-2.
The third period was a little less eventful than the second. Just under eight minutes into the frame, Andreas Englund beat Danis to double the Binghamton lead. And that sealed the deal for the Senators, as they won the first game of the series 4-2.
The IceCaps get back in action tomorrow evening, looking to avenge this tough loss.
