(WBNG Binghamton) Many experts will tell you that winning game one of a best of seven playoff series is important.
Especially on the road.
But the B-Sens aren't looking at it as a must win.
After a light workout this morning, the Binghamton Senators are on their way to New Hampshire, for their first playoff game since 2005.
Just like the motto's been for most of the season, the B-Sens are looking to take it one game at a time.
And aren't putting too much stock in winning game one on the road.
"We don't play that this is a big game. This is a big moment. We just show up for 60 minutes and bring our game the way we need to play it....the right way, whistle to whistle...that generally gets us the results that we need," says Coach Kurt Kleinendorst.
"Game 1 is important but at the same time if you don't get game 1, game 2 becomes that much more important for us. You never go into a series making one game more important than another or anything like that. For us, I think the focus is to go win game 1 and we'll worry about game 2 and so forth after that," says Ryan Keller.
Games one and two of the series will be in Manchester.
Game one is Thursday night at 7:00 pm.
