On Tuesday night the Binghamton Senators handed the Charlotte Checkers a thorough 7-1 beating and have taken a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series for the Eastern Conference Championship in the Calder Cup playoffs. The BSens have two chances to close out the series on their own home ice. None of the three games so far has even been close.
Zack Smith led the way for the BSens, netting a hat trick. Bobby Sanguinetti scored the only goal of the game (in fact the only goal since game one) for the Checkers.
On Thursday night, the Checkers opened their Eastern Conference final series against the Binghamton Senators with a 7-4 loss. The seven goals against matched the total goals against in the first five games of the six-game series against WBS Penguins. Suffice to say, Mike Murphy didn’t bring his “A” game. He gave up five goals on just 15 shots before being relieved by Justin Pogge midway through the second period.
Despite outshooting the B-Sens 40-22, the Checkers just didn’t have what it took in this game. Charlotte surrendered a shorthanded goal and a power play goal. They did manage to score two power play goals of their own, but every time they climbed to within one goal, the B-Sens widened their lead.
Thirteen different Senators and nine different Checkers registered at least one point.
