Looking at this weekend’s opponent, the Binghamton Senators.
Binghamton Senators (4-7-2, 10 points; last in AHL East Division)
Estimated Fenwick Close: 45.11%
Top Scorer: Chris Wideman, 8G+9A=17 points
Goalies: Andrew Hammond, .902 save percentage in 12 GP; Scott Greenham .942 save percentage in 2 games played
Transactions This Week: none
Binghamton is a team that looks to be fully healthy with no recent transactions and starting goaltender Andrew Hammond expected to tend the net. Usually the class of the East Division the past few years, the BSens are not off to a hot start. They’re not possessing the puck, and when they do, they aren’t getting goals. They find themselves on the unlucky end of PDO thanks to an 8.55 shooting percentage. Norfolk must control the puck and get as many shots as possible on Hammond. When Binghamton has the puck, the Ads need to have reliable goaltending while hoping that bad luck keeps up for the Sens. Norfolk can’t get complacent, though, as Chris Wideman is the third-leading scorer in the AHL. Beyond that, JG Pageau and Matt Puempel have given the Ads fits and must be contained.
