Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
As for the other side, there was a large section in blue tonight cheering on hometown favorite Jerry D'Amigo.
After a rocky rookie campaign, the now second-year pro is approaching this season with an open mind, and there's no better way to start a long year on the road with some home cooking.
This was the Marlies first game of the season.
They were in town last night, and went to dinner at the D'Amigo family restaurant, Red's Kettle Inn.
A group of fans waited for the Marlies outside their locker room, waiting for the team to board the bus.
Their next game is next Friday, at Grand Rapids.
