BINGHAMTON (WBNG) - The Binghamton Devils are in Belleville, Ontario, Canada for the first meeting between the B-Devils and Belleville Senators. Before the team left on Tuesday afternoon, 12 Sports Director Larry Burneal caught up with Binghamton Devils head coach Rick Kowalsky for an early edition of B-Devils Sit-down.
Big game for Binghamton hockey fans, how much does that translate to you guys on the ice?
"Honestly, we haven't thought about it too much," said Binghamton Devils head coach Rick Kowalsky. "I think the guys, myself included, are more excited to see the rink and new town. I played juniors, and some of these older guys have played junior hockey in Belleville, but obviously there is the history with the team being here (in Binghamton). I think the fans might put a little more stock into it, but it's still a division opponent for us. It might be a little weird being on different sides of it, I guess. Plus, add the fact that this is a new location for us and it's a new location for them, but I think it's more just getting to see the rink, and certainly for me, the renovations they have made since I was there in the early 90s."
Puck drops on Wednesday in Belleville at 7 p.m.
