Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Saturday night was the last time the Binghamton Senators will play at the Broome County Veterans memorial arena this season.

And both the fans and players saluted each other.

The sell-out crowd was loud all night, giving the team a boost.

After the game, the team took time to salute the fans.

Player say the fans have been great during the playoffs, and the team wanted to show them their efforts did not go unnoticed.

"There's a good buzz. Everyone's talking about it. You can't go many places without getting good luck or go hard so its been huge and it was nice after the game. We know we haven't won anything yet. It was nice to get a chance to salute the fans," says Zack Smith.

"The fan support in the playoffs has been unbelievable and we've ridden that. The guys in the locker room, we're a tight knit group and there was a lot of emotion after the game and we saluted the fans because they've helped us out and they've been great," says Erik Condra.

The B-Sens say they are trying to win the Calder Cup not only for themselves, but also for the fans in the area that have supported them all season long.
