Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

The team took a private charter direct to Houston, ready for game 6 tomorrow.
But today they are still thinking of home.
The B-Sens assistant coach Steve Sterling remains in the hospital after undergoing a quadruple bypass yesterday.
Obviously he will remain home while the team looks for one more win.

The Sens know the toughest part of any playoff series is winning that 4th game to clinch.
But the team will have to do just that on the road.
That may not be such a bad thing.
And even though they've gone 9 and 2 on the road during the playoffs, the Sens aren't counting on that.
They're expecting Houston to come out and play tough, especially in the win or go home scenario.

"If you want to be a championship team, you can't get complacent at any time. We're one win away from the championship and we're going into a barn with a desperate team. They've played great all series. If we get complacent, that's just not going to work."
"If we battled a wounded animal tonight which I think we did...they're going to really feel like their backs are against the wall on Tuesday so we're going to have to find a way to come out and be very, very good."

The B-Sens lead the series 3 games to 2.
Game 6 will be Tuesday night at 8:00.
Game 7, if necessary will be Thursday night.
