Down 2 Goals The Devils Storm Back To Defeat Binghamton
It certainly didn’t look promising Saturday night for the Albany Devils. On the road going against 1 of the best teams in the East in the Binghamton Senators the Devs dug themselves a 3-1 deficit in the 2nd period. Fear not however as Albany scored 4 straight times and defeated Binghamton 5-3.
Riding a 4 game slide the odds were getting any better after early goals by Sens players Borowiecki, Pageau, and Prince. However down by 2 Albany kicked it into gear. Steve Zalewski started the comeback with his 10th goal of the season at 5:52 of the 2nd. Mike Sislo scored hos 4th less then 5 minutes later that ties the game at 3. Before the period ended. Joe Whitney’s power play goal with 23 seconds left gave Albany the lead for good.
Phil DeSimone capped off the night and the scoring and the Senators with his 6th tally of the year just after the halfway point of the final period.
Jeff Frazee was strong between the pipes stopping 36 shots. He lowered his goals against to a solid 2.42 for the year. Side note the Devils had 20 shots on goal themselves in just the 2nd period alone, 35 for the game.
