Binghamton Senators Pre-Game Edition: Albany Devils


The red-hot Devils have won eight of their last eleven and face the Senators at the Veterans Memorial Arena tonight for the two team’s first meeting of the season. The B-Sens are looking to snap their three game losing streak and pull ahead out of a first place tie with the Penguins. The Devils sit in second place in the Northeast and have tallied 14 goals in their last two games as Andrew Hammond (6-3-1-0, 3.14gaa) appears to get the call in goal for the B-Sens and Keith Kinkaid (8-3-1-2, 2.30gaa) for Albany.
