It wasn't always this way.
There was a point in this post season that the B-Sens captain joked they didn't mind going on the road because they didn't get booed as much away from their home ice.
But right now home is looking very sweet to the Binghamton Senators.

After splitting 2 games in Houston the B-Sens now own home ice advantage in the Calder Cup finals.
An advantage they hope is very big come tomorrow night.

" We've had great support here from everybody in Binghamton. I'm sure it's going to be unbelievable playing in front of them."

" In the playoffs, the crowd here has been amazing. I'm looking forward to the Wednesday game, hopefully we can win that, then see what happens Friday and Saturday."

All 3 home games are nearly sold out with some limited seats still available at the B-Sens team offices at the Arena.

As for the game on the home ice, the team is hoping some regular work can get their offense back into gear.
In the Eastern Conference finals they faced a stingy Charlotte defense and promptly lit them up for 21 goals in 4 games.
But besides the Aeros defense, there are other factors working against them right now.

" The ice is a little more difficult to work with. But again, we don't make it a negative, we make it a positive. It's a great thing to be playing on bad ice right now. There is an art to it."

" Trying to make some adjustments, I guess, to create more offense. They're in the Calder Cup finals for a reason. They're a good team defense, their goalie plays well. Goals are going to be hard to come by. If we win three more games 1-0, I think we're all fine with that in that room."

Game 3 of the Calder Cup finals is tomorrow night at the Veterans memorial arena and it's a 7:05 start.
