Binghamton Black Bears vs Danbury Hat Tricks Playoff Game

It's only a three-game series, so getting the win at home tonight will be HUGE. Game 2 will be in Danbury on Tuesday, April 19th at 7:30 p.m., and the "if necessary" game will be in Danbury on Wednesday, April 20th.

On Easter Sunday, All Binghamton Black Bears fans like rabbits but not so much tonight when the Danbury Hat Tricks come to town. If you've seen the Danbury mascot (on the shoulder), then you'll understand the rabbit reference.

They are calling for some snow this evening but we hope that you can make it out to the game tonight. It might be the last home game of the season (WE HOPE NOT), so come out and cheer on the team that has given us so many thrills this year.

The quest for the Commissioner's Cup begins tonight at home and no matter what happens, it's been an awesome season. We are looking forward to next year but they aren't done this year yet. LET'S GO BLACK BEARS!!!
