Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
" It's just good to get back on track. The guys have got it figured out. Now it's just a matter of getting it out of them every single night. "
It was a year ago in late January, playing Hershey and Adirondack over the course of 3 days that the Binghamton Senators seemed to finally click. They earned at least a point in 11 straight games, winning 8 consecutive.
And we all know how that ended.
" AND THAT'LL DO IT...THE BINGHAMTON SENATORS ARE THE 2011 CALDER CUP CHAMPIONS!!! "
Well fresh off a weekend sweep of Hershey and Adirondack, the B-Sens, inparticular those back from last year's championship team, are ready to do that again.
" Absolutely. Last year, like you said we weren't the first place team during the season and you just have to get on a roll, play good and anything can happen. "
Players like O'Brien are coming back from injury, with more on the way.
The power-play unit is improving, the goal tending continues to be very good, and even when facing a 3-1 deficit Sunday, the team battled back for a much needed win.
" Coming back from 3-1 like that it's a lot of confidence it gives the players once we can accomplish that and just shows if we stick together and work hard that we can come back in games."
" They've always shown their character, they've always gotten along, like I said earlier, no one has ever turned on anybody so for me if we can just keep bringing that type of an effort I think we can keep getting those kind of results."
