Senators and Devils have split the two games played with two remaining including today’s contest. Binghamton shutout Albany 7-0 on home ice back in Nov while losing 4-3 in overtime on Mar 1st in Abany.


Paul Thompson, ALB – The 26-year-old forward is in his first season playing for the Devils and he’s been mentioned in previous pregame reports, but for good reason as he leads the team with 29 goals and is tied with teammate Joe Whitney with 49 points.

Ryan Dzingel, BNG – Let’s face it, there are a lot of rookies that don’t do what Dzingel does in utilizing his speed and having the knack of scoring, as that game winner on Friday was just simply amazing. The rookie out of Ohio State is going to be someone to keep on the radar in moving forward next season.


1. First Line for the Sens – The team’s best offense line continues to be obviously the first line, as the way they go the team follows with Carter Camper, Shane Prince and Cole Schneider leading the way and in control, as the trio are fun to watch.

2. Who’s in Net? With the team rolling three goalies, will prospect Chris Driedger play the remaining 7 games that are left or will he get a break and either Scott Greenham or Peter Mannino step in as relief? At this stage of the season, let Driedger start in all 7 and continue to rotate the back-ups.

3. Team’s Playing Nearly .500 Hockey – With a win today the Sens will be back at .500 and have a shot of moving up in the division to third slot. It may mean nothing overall, but hey it’s something to root for with the playoffs just about outta sight. Speaking of which, the next loss will mathematically put them out of contention.
