Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) It was one of the best weekend's the B-Sens have had this season. Three games equaled three wins for Binghamton sweeping those in a three-day stretch.

Two of those wins came after regulation. One being an overtime victory in Rochester Friday, and the other a shootout win in Hershey to cap things off on Sunday.

This season overall the B-Sens have yet to lose a game tied after regulation, going 5-0. Coach Luke Richardson believes it's about more than just having some clutch players on his side.

"I think that shows the skill level on our team. When you get down to overtime and it's four-on-four, I think there's a lot more room for our skill guys to work out there and I think it puts the other team on their heels," said Richardson. "They look to preserve in overtime, where we're looking to go after that extra point. I think the shootout really shows the dominant skill. On the benches as the coaches we don't know where to start to pick."

The B-Sens are on a four-game winning streak with a pair of home games coming up this weekend.

Petersson expected to return this weekend
After missing the last three weeks, Andre Petersson is expected to be in the lineup on Friday night when the B-Sens host Adirondack, according to Coach Richardson.

In other injury news, Ludwig Karlsson skated on his own Tuesday at practice. Karlsson has been out suffering concussion symptoms. Richardson expects Karlsson to skate more on Wednesday.

Jim O'Brien still continues to be hampered by an aggravated hamstring. He practiced on Tuesday, but without contact.

Wideman suspended by AHL
The B-Sens Chris Wideman has been suspended by the AHL for one game after receiving a match penalty for slashing on Sunday at Hershey.

Wideman will miss Binghamton's game against Adirondack on Friday.
