Binghamton vs. Wilkes-Barre (1/31)

Another good effort from the Baby Sens as they win their fourth game in a row and first this year against the Penguins, 4-1. At the end of the second and in the third they had a bit of a letdown, but not enough to cause any damage.

Best players on the ice tonight, in my opinion: Ray Emery, Peter Smrek, Andy Hedlund, Charlie Stephens, Arpad Mihaly and Brian McGrattan. Emery played one of his best games, stopping 42 shots. He made many quality saves and battled a lot of traffic tonight in the slot area. I'm still wondering how the goal he let in actually went in and I think he is too. It was from a bad angle, but he had the post covered. I don't know how it went in. I've been calling for Smrek to be on the power play for some time and now he finally is and he's coming through. He had three points tonight as he and Hedlund moved the puck quickly and with precision with the extra man. More importantly, he stepped it up physically in front of his own net. Hedlund made some beautiful passes tonight and was seeing the ice well. His pass that set up Stephens' goal in the first was a beauty. Stephens did all the things the team wants him to do. He used his big body for screens and winning battles along the boards and he scored another goal. The trade is working out wonderfully. Mihaly has earned himself a spot on this team with a magnificent work ethic. He keeps improving every game and tonight he provided the fuel on his line. McGrattan finally played well again. When he works hard and controls himself he can contribute. He scored a goal off a deflection and threw his weight around in a positive manner. When a Penguins' player shoved Alexandre Giroux after Giroux scored a goal, McGrattan immediately dropped the gloves and went after him, winning the fight.

Worst players on the ice tonight, in my opinion: Christoph Schubert and Greg Watson. Carelessness at your own blueline is never a good thing and Schubert was having his share of troubles tonight. They've tried scratching Watson, benching him, playing him a lot, everything you could imagine and nothing is working. Either he's a bust or is a very slow developer. With his intensity level being where it is and his willingness to improve being where it is, I'll bet on the former.

Jody Hull (abdomen), Chris Kelly (back) and Josh Langfeld (recalled) did not play.

Thanks for the update BSF. From the looks of the box score this game might have been just as rough as the Sens-Leafs one.

I think it was at times. There were some dirty plays for sure. I think both Sens teams played their biggest rivals on the same night.
