Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

No NHL player's, no problem for the B-Sens, at least not so far. Despite losing seven players to Ottawa for training camp, the B-Sens still got the best of Norfolk Saturday night.

Monday, the team was back on the ice learning to gel together with some new faces from Elmira, but there's little time for the B-Sens to worry about adjusting to some new faces. Binghamton hosts Rochester Wednesday night in a mid-week game at the Arena. A win over the Amerks and the B-Sens find themselves just a point behind first-place Syracuse.

"We pay attention to the standings, and we don't want to be second," said Coach Luke Richardson. "We want to catch whoever is in front of us, that's been our goal all year. Syracuse is a real tough team, and we just have to do what we can do and control what we can control, and that's our games."

"Everybody here right now is in the same boat, so we can't really feel sorry for ourselves because if we do then we're going to lose some points that we need desperately," said Corey Cowick. "Wednesday's going to be a huge game, with a lot of points we can get to kind of crawl back within striking distance of Syracuse especially with a game agains them in two weeks."

Once the B-Sens hit the ice Wednesday, the B-Sens won't have too much time to rest for a while, as starting with that game against the Amerks Binghamton plays four games in the next six days.
