Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

As Mark Twain once wrote, reports of their death has been greatly exaggerated.
The Binghamton Senators showed new life last night in staving off elimination to force their first round series back to New Hampshire.

There are plenty of people responsible for the win. Most notable may be forward Ryan Potulny, who scored two more goals last night and now leads the league with 7 in the postseason.
But it's goaltender Robin Lehner that earned the win in his first ever playoff game, and coach Kurt Kleinendorst says he will ride the hot hand.

" We'll ride Robin right now. Barry Brust did a wonderful job, and we all know that. But this is just the way it works, you know. Robin got an opportunity tonight, and he made the most of it, so we will come right back with him on Friday."

Lehner says, " Yeah, well, they wanted to get some days off here, and I think we rattled their cage a little bit. Can we win the next one, all of a sudden it's 3-3, and we don't know what happening."

Game 6 in the series is back in Manchester tomorrow night at 7:00.
