Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Binghamton Senators will have their starting goalie back as they start a three-game road trip in Worcester on Wednesday. Nathan Lawson is expected to start in net for the B-Sens, coach Luke Richardson said on Tuesday.
Lawson has been out since January 11th, when he was knocked out in the first period of a game against Adirondack.
In other injury news, Derek Grant is expected to be back on the ice Wednesday or Thursday for Binghamton. Richardson said the team hopes he can return by Friday or Saturday night.
Even without Grant, the B-Sens offense continues to produce. One of the major points of production over the weekend was Shane Prince.
Prince scored five goals in the three games over the weekend, including a hat trick in the first period in Albany on Sunday. Both Richardson and Prince hope that type of production sticks around.
"I think things have been going a bit better," Prince said on Tuesday. "We're moving the puck, we're playing well. I'm just trying to go out and play hard every night, and hopefully the goals come."
"I was real happy for him. He's been working hard lately and things have been starting to come around for him, which kind of happened for him last year around this time," Richardson said. "The second half of the year he really took off, so we're hoping he's on that track again."
The team starts the three-game road trip in Worcester on Wednesday before making stops in Manchester and Portland to finish off the weekend.
