Wilkes-Barre, PA (WBNG Binghamton) The slimmest of margins separates the B-Sens and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins heading into Game 4. The two are separated by just one goal. The problem for Binghamton, the one overtime goal from Game 3 has placed their backs firmly against the wall.

Trailing 2-1 in the best-of-five series following the OT loss Wednesday night, the B-Sens must-win Friday to force a Game 5 back in Binghamton.

It certainly isn't the ideal position for any team, but as coach Luke Richardson said after Game 3 we'll learn a lot about the players character Friday night.

"We definitely want to focus on getting off to a good start and staying consistent on that for 60 minutes," said Richardson. "You know when you have good athletes, and we have a good bunch of people in that room, when you put their backs against the wall, usually they come out with their best performance. So that's what we're looking for Friday."

A loss would make it the second straight year the Penguins have knocked the B-Sens out of the playoffs.

Puck drops at 7:05 in Wilkes-Barre for Game 4.
