Nichols, NY {WBNG Binghamton) Tonight fans got to meet the faces that get slammed up on the glass and are stars on the ice.

The Binghamton Senators held their Meet the B-Sens Casino night at Tioga Downs.

It's fun having a night off to relax, but they still have a game coming up.

With a 3-2 record, they are focusing on winning, but it can be difficult, balancing their last two seasons.

In 2010, the Senators won the Calder Cup, and last year they didn't come close to play offs.

In regards to the Calder Cup, Head Coach, Luke Richardson said, "that's what we'd like to recreate and that's a lot of hard work. We can't look too hard ahead but, there are some players that are still here from that team that still have that winning feeling. They want to bring it back."

A new coach and some new players, the Senators are trying to live in the moment and not in their past.

Corey Cowick, left wing, said, "when you have a new coach, a new voice, a new mentality, it helps more than guys saying lets do it. Everyone is starting off at square one again."

Defenceman, Andre Benoit said, "you always want to win as much as possible and play as many games as you can. But right now, our first concern is gelling as a team and trying to get wins in early."

The B-Sens head up to Maine on Saturday to take on the Portland Pirates.
