Pat Cannone, Patrick Wiercioch and Hugh Jessiman each had three points nights and Ben Bishop made 40 saves to help the Binghamton Senators extend their winning streak to 9 games on Friday Night. They defeated the Portland Pirates 6-1.
Portland actually scored first, with Brendan Shiniman scoring on a power play 6:10 into the first. The lead didn’t last long as Cannone replied 29 seconds later to tie it up and then scored again five and a half minutes into the second to give Binghamton the lead for good. Jessiman added to the lead before the end of the second.
The third period was a gong show with a multitude of penalties totalling over 90 minutes, with Binghamton adding more offense as Wiercioch’s pair bookended Jakob Silfverberg’s single to put the game out of reach.
Bishop played the game but it was also good news that Robin Lehner was dressed as the backup after sitting out last weekend’s action with some bumps and bruises.
Look for Lehner to get back into action as the Senators attempt to make it an even 10 straight wins on Saturday night when they host the Milwaukee Admirals.
