The Binghamton Senators‘ game four last night went something like Canada’s Federal Election that was also held last night. Going into the game, fans wondered if Bingo could take a commanding lead in the series with a win. Going into the election last night, Canadians wondered if the Conservative Party would finally get their majority government. In both cases, the opposition crashed and burned which gave way to both the B-Sens and the Conservative Party taking full control of their situations.
With Bingo jumping out to an early 1-0 lead just three minutes into the game on a Mike Hoffman goal, the B-Sens looked to be off to a great start. But at the 8:17 mark of the first period, Luke Adam got Portland on the board to tie the game at one apiece. But ten seconds later, Kaspars Daugavins scored his sixth of the playoffs to give Bingo the lead for good. Captain Ryan Keller would also score in the period as the score was 3-1 Binghamton after 20 minutes.
The B-Sens added three more goals as Daugavins scored his second of the game, and Ryan Potulny added a pair himself. The final score was 6-1 in Binghamton’s favour as they take a 3-1 series lead over Portland.

The only negative on the night is that the call-ups that ended the year in Ottawa did not play a major role in the game. With six goals for the home team, Erik Condra, Bobby Butler, Zach Smith and Colin Greening only managed three assists among them. Or is this a good thing that the team is rolling without their big guns producing?
Ryan Potulny continues to lead the AHL playoffs in scoring with ten goals and 19 points. And goalie Robin Lehner got back in the win column as he now sports a 6-1 record with a GAA of 2.48 and a SV% of 0.927.
Game five goes tonight as the Binghamton Senators look to close out Portland on home ice. Puck drop is at 7 pm. Enjoy the game and GO B-SENS GO!!!!
