Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The number most people would focus on from Saturday's Binghamton Senators game is eight. However, for the B-Sens the bigger number might have been zero from the 8-0 shutout against Worcester.
It marked the first shutout of the season for the team, and is the largest shutout in the teams history.
With all the focus on the offensive numbers so far this season, the defense took some pride in finally putting up a zero on the board.

"Sometimes you see a score like 8-0 and you think maybe it was an easy game," said captain Mark Borowiecki. "But I think the reason the score was that way was because we played so well and played such a complete game."
"I thought the guys focused and stayed with it and worked at the defense," said Luke Richardson. "We really didn't give up too many chances. They got a couple of shots in the third period, but not a lot of chances. I thought that was a real good sign of us having some real good discipline as a team and some pride in our defensive game and try to pull that out for our goaltender."
The B-Sens look to carry that over to Wednesday's game at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The B-Sens beat the Penguins 6-2 at home on Friday night.
