BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The Binghamton Devils inaugural season is officially over. The team racked up just 25 wins, missed a playoff spot by 25 points, and scored the fourth fewest goals in the entire American Hockey League.
"Even though the record was not very good at all, it could've been a lot better," said B-Devils head coach Rick Kowalsky at Monday's final media session. "Whether we got in the playoffs or not, I think the most frustrating thing is not playing more meaningful games really the last quarter of the season."
The team finished fifth in the North Division with 63 points, 25 points behind Utica, who coincidentally was the team that eliminated the B-Devils from playoff contention back on March 25.
"And even if you don't get in, you're still in a position where you're fighting to get in and that was lost on us way too early this year," Kowalsky added.
