Game Report

This was the kind of game the IceCaps needed as they push to stay in the playoff race.  It only took 39 seconds after puck drop for Max Friberg to pot the game’s first goal, assisted by Gabriel Dumont and Darren Dietz.

Next it was Shane Bakker’s turn to light the lamp, getting his first goal of the season. Andrew Yogan and John Scott assisted on Bakker’s goal, the third consecutive game with a helper for Yogan.

Dumont then scored a goal of his own in the waning seconds of the first period and the IceCaps headed to the dressing room up 3-0 at first intermission.

Penalty minutes started being served in the second period when Zach Stortini went hard at Morgan Ellis behind the net and Bakker dropped the gloves to defend his teammate.  The Senators were able to tally two goals in the second period, but Charles Hudon answered with a power play goal and Eddie Pasquale kept Binghamton out of the net for the rest of the game.

The Icecaps face the Binghamton Senators again on Wednesday night to finish out the back-to-back series.
