B-Sens Goalie Controversy?

Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) - What do you do when you've got three good goalies competing for only two roster spots?

That's the dilemma facing B-Sens head coach Don Nachbaur when he gets back to the team tomorrow.

The rest of the team took the ice this evening after the holiday break.

Nachbaur's flight from Philadelphia was delayed by weather.

Mike Brodeur, Andy Chiodo and Chris Holt have all played well in net this season.

Brodeur spent the past 14 games as Ottawa's backup, earning a win in his NHL debut last Saturday.

While he was gone, Holt was called up from Elmira and pitched a pair of shutouts while sharing time with Chiodo.

Now that all three are back, who's the odd man out?

"I've paid my dues going down and being the guy that gets to play in the East Coast League and selfishly, I'd like to stay and do what I can here," says Holt.

"I'll be honest I haven't thought about that situation," says Chiodo. "That's not anywhere in my head. Going down is not something I'm thinking about at all. Like, not even a little bit."

"I'm just going to work hard everyday, do my job, stop the puck and hopefully, things will happen for me," adds Brodeur. "It's a battle everyday, good competition."

A decision will be made tomorrow before the B-Sens take Arena ice against Adirondack.

Also, it's very possible that leading goal-scorer Ryan Keller could be sent up to Ottawa tomorrow to replace the injured Daniel Alfredsson.
