Binghamton wins sixth straight 6-1 over Bridgeport

BINGHAMTON, New York – Behind another solid game in goal from Robin Lehner, the Binghamton Senators won their third game in as many nights, and their sixth in a row, coasting past the Bridgeport Sound Tigers 6-1 on Saturday.
Lehner faced 36 shots in boosting his record to 8-2-1.
He might have got his second shutout of the season, but, with Binghamton ahead 6-0 in the third, play turned sloppy and Brandon DeFazio scored with six minutes left in the game.
The six goals were the most the Senators have scored this season.
Kevin Poulin started in goal for Bridgeport but was chased at 8:36 of the second when the Senators went ahead 4-0. Anders Nilsson mopped up for the Tigers. Poulin faced 20 shots, Nilsson faced 24.
Cole Schneider and Eric Gryba each had two goals for the Senators, their first goals of the season.
Derek Grant, with his team-leading sixth, and Andre Benoit, on the power play, also scored for the Senators, who had a 2-0 lead after one and a 5-0 lead after two.
Binghamton’s weekend started with a 3-2 win over the Toronto Marlies on Thanksgiving Day. Ben Bishop was in goal for that game.
Friday night, with Lehner in net, the Senators squeaked past the Syracuse Crunch 2-1.
The Senators are now off until Friday when they visit the Adirondack Phantoms.
NOTE: Binghamton’s second goal in Friday’s 2-1 win over Syracuse, initially given to Derek Grant, was later given to Tyler Eckford, who also scored Binghamton’s first goal.
