Binghamton Senators hang on for 3-2 win over Toronto Marlies

BINGHAMTON, New York – Jakob Silfverberg, one of the Ottawa Senators’ most promising young prospects, had a goal and set up another by former Ottawa 67 Shane Prince as the Binghamton Senators (8-4-1-1) hung on for a 3-2 win over the Toronto Marlies.
Defenceman Patrick Wiercioch added an unassisted goal in the third when he drifted a long wrist shot past Toronto goalie Ben Scrivens. The goal was Wiercioch’s fourth of the season.
Silfverberg’s three goals and six assists make him Binghamton’s leading scorer.
Prince’s goal was his second of the season.
Ben Bishop (2-2-0), in just his fourth start of the season, faced 48 shots for the Senators. Scrivens faced 25.
Carter Ashton and Matt Frattin, with Scrivens off for an extra attacker in the final two minutes, scored for the Marlies (9-6-0-1).
The Senators also had to survive a two-man disadvantage in the final five minutes when Derek Grant went off for high sticking and Mark Borowiecki followed for tripping.
Bishop’s biggest save was on a point-blank shot at the right post from Nazem Kadri.
The Senators will play the second of three games in a row tonight in Syracuse. Robin Lehner will be in net.
On Saturday back in Binghamton, the Senators will close out the weekend against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
