Binghamton Senators Face Must-Win Thursday In Calder Cup Playoffs
Following two losses on home ice last weekend the Binghamton Senators face a do- or- die situation when they travel to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Thursday night. The B-Sens had the home ice advantage to start the best of five playoff series but that was nullified after the Penguins won the opener in the series 3-2 in overtime Saturday.
Then, Sunday night the Pens won another close decision in regulation 3-2. With that loss Binghamton now must win Thursday or face a long off-season. If the B-Sens win Thursday they would have to win again on Saturday at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to have a chance at a fifth game here in Binghamton next Monday.
Fans have the chance to help further inspire the B-Sens before they hit the ice Thursday night. The B-Sens are inviting fans to drop off handwritten messages of inspiration at the hockey office in the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena. Fans can also tweet their message to “WeBELIEVE” to@ BSens_Hockey. Messages will be transported to Wilkes-Barre and posted outside the B-Sens locker room prior to Thursday night’s game.
