Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) It was a bittersweet weekend for the Binghamton Senators as the team clinched an AHL playoff spot, but lost two straight at Norfolk.

Monday the B-Sens were back at practice in the Arena, looking to brush off losses that have pushed their losing streak to a season-worst three games.

However, despite the losses the team is still pleased to be back in the playoffs for the first time since winning the Calder Cup in 2011.

"We congratulated the guys, and there was a lot of hard work this year and they did secure a playoff berth, but we're still striving to be the best," said Coach Luke Richardson. "I think we're two points behind Syracuse and we're striving to catch them, and it would be sure fun to play that last game of the year and have it mean something."

"It was good to clinch, but we didn't like the fashion that we did it in," said Pat Cannone. "Losing two games and relying on somebody else, but it's past us now we can only go forward and try and go on a winning note into the playoffs."

Binghamton looks to turn things around starting Friday when the B-Sens host Albany.
