Baby Senators win fifth straight 2-1 over Syracuse

SYRACUSE, New York – Behind another terrific game from Robin Lehner, the Binghamton Senators (9-4-1-1) won their fifth straight on Friday night, hanging on for a 2-1 victory over the Syracuse Crunch (10-3-1-1).
Lehner faced 31 shots in running his record to 7-2-1.
Dustin Tokarski faced 24 for the Crunch, Tampa Bay’s AHL affiliate.
Tyler Eckford, with his fourth at 1:13 of the first period, and Derek Grant, with his sixth at 1:11 of the third, staked Binghamton to a 2-0 lead before Syracuse’s Richard Panik made it 2-1 with a power-play goal at 6:12 of the third.
The final minute was frantic for the Senators with Syracuse pulling Tokarski for an extra attacker and Binghamton centre Pat Cannone going off for closing his hand on the puck.
The Senators return to Binghamton to host the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Saturday night, their third game in three nights.
