Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) After winning six straight games the B-Sens are the hottest team in the AHL, and they continue to get stronger. This weekend, Binghamton was aided by the return of Andre Petersson.

He had missed the last month with a lower body injury, but in his first two games back Petersson tossed in a goal and an assist in back-to-back wins for the B-Sens.

He said it felt good, but believes his skating can certainly get better after missing so many games. A couple points in his first two outings back though, certainly doesn't hurt.

"I've played two games now in a month, so obviously you're set back a bit," said Petersson. "But I'm trying to work on it every day so I'll try to get back to 100 percent as quick as possible."

"I thought Friday he shot the puck and fooled the goalie because he's got a pretty deceptive shot," said coach Luke Richardson. "He can really wing it and slam it in off the top crossbar, so we'd like to see that a little bit more."

In other injury news, Jim O'Brien is likely to return to the lineup this weekend, according to Richardson.

O'Brien hasn't played in over three weeks as he's been trying to recover from a hamstring injury.
