Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The B-Sens six straight wins have made them the hottest team in the AHL, but that doesn't mean there aren't still things to fix. Last weekend might have equaled two wins for Binghamton, but Friday night was a bit troublesome defensively.

Starting goalie Nathan Lawson made 48 saves while facing 50 shots in a win over Adirondack, a worrisome stat for coach Luke Richardson.

With captain, and starting defenseman, Mark Borowiecki up in Ottawa, he says it's been a cumulative effort to keep things together in the B-Sens zone.

"I think that we did a better job on Saturday night with that, but we can't get comfortable having to rely on our goaltending to bail us out every night," said Richardson. "We have to play a structural game and make sure we're all playing it for 60 minutes. I think we're better at it than we were earlier in the year, so again we want to make sure we keep getting better every day."

Richardson added it's been a joint effort to pick up where Borowiecki left off here in Binghamton.

After missing a series of games due to concussion symptoms Ludwig Karlsson was re-assigned by the B-Sens to Elmira.

Karlsson was just cleared for contact in practice this week, and Richardson said on Tuesday the team is looking to get him more game action.
