The Binghamton Senators tried to extend their 2-0 series lead over the Portland Pirates on Saturday night in game three of their second round AHL playoff series. Having won the first two games on the road, Binghamton had won their last five playoff games and was rolling.
Binghamton went down early in the first, but stormed back in the second with two goals to take the lead back. With goals from captain Ryan Keller and Kaspars Daugavins, Bingo went into the third period up 2-1. Portland tied the game early in the third with a goal from Derek Whitmore. With the game looking like it was headed for overtime, Tom Conboy scored with 12 seconds left in the game for the Portland win.
With Portland needing the win badly or else be on life support in game four, this is now a series as each team is defeating the purpose of the home team advantage. The loss was also Robin Lehner‘s first career playoff loss as he was a perfect 4-0 going into the game.

Game four goes tonight in Binghamton as the B-Sens look to once again, take a strangle hold on the series. Bingo needs more help from their young guns as their veterans have been carrying the load thus far. Colin Greening is one player who needs to step up in the series if he hopes to impress Sens management to get a look next year in Ottawa.
Puck drop is at 7 pm. Enjoy the game and GO B-SENS GO!!!!
