FLAMES FALL 5-3 TO SENATORS

Binghamton, NY – The Adirondack Flames fell 5-3 against the Binghamton Senators on Saturday evening at the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, NY.

Winger Bryce Van Brabant was the top performing Flame with two goals, the first multi-goal game of his AHL career. Pat Sieloff also scored for Adirondack and Turner Elson collected two assists. Matt Puempel led the way for Binghamton with three points (2-1-3), while Chris Driedger made 24 saves to earn the victory. Adirondack netminder Brad Thiessen made 25 stops in defeat.

Adirondack opened the scoring as Sieloff netted his first career AHL goal 11:05 into the first period with a wrist shot from the slot. The American born defenseman took a feed in the slot from Devin Setoguchi and beat Driedger on the glove side. Defenseman Sena Acolatse also collected his first helper of the season on the play with the secondary assist as Setoguchi earned his fourth point in four games with Adirondack.

The Senators knotted the score just under than three minutes later as Fredrik Claesson beat Thiessen for his first goal of the season. Claesson’s point shot took an odd carom off the end boards behind Thiessen and bounced through the crease, where it defected home off of Sieloff’s stick. Alex Grant had the lone assist on the play for Binghamton.

Binghamton used another bit of puck luck to take a 2-1 lead late in the second. Thiessen came out to play the puck at the top of the circles but it died before it reached him and Puempel was able to swat it into the gaping net. Grant and Buddy Robinson collected the assists on the play, the second point of the evening for Grant.

The Flames were able to tie the score 12:20 into the second period as Van Brabant deflected a Tyler Wotherspoon shot past Driedger to make it 2-2. Wotherspoon’s wrister from the point went into a cluster in front and hit Van Brabant’s shin to redirect home. Elson also collected an assist on the play, his first point since November 8 against Hamilton.

Robinson collected a goal of his own just four minutes from the end of the period as he buried a feed from Derek Grant to make it 3-2 Binghamton. The goal was Robinson’s third of the season on the third goal of the evening for the Senators assisted by a player named Grant.

The Flames struck late in the second to re-tie the score as Van Brabant collected a feed from Elson and put a hard wrist shot from the left flank to the low glove hand and into the back of the net. The goal gave Van Brabant his second of the evening, the first two-goal game of his AHL career. Elson’s assist on the play gave him his first two-point game both of the season and of his AHL career.

Adirondack appeared to be on its way to a tie score at intermission but the Senators had other ideas as Puempel buried his second of the evening with just three seconds left on the clock. The winger took a feed from defenseman Patrick Mullen on the right hand circle and put a one-timer past Thiessen. The goal, Puempel’s second of the evening, was also assisted by blueliner Chris Wideman.

The home side doubled its advantage back to two goals exactly on the halfway point of the third period, as Danny Hobbs buried a rebound in front of Thiessen to push the scoreline to 5-3. Wideman put a hard shot on net from the right hand circle that Thiessen kicked away, but the Adirondack netminder could not control the rebound which allowed Hobbs to pounce for the goal. David Dziurzynski collected the secondary assist on the play.

The Flames are back in action at 3:00 p.m. tomorrow at the Times Union Center in Albany, as the Flames and Devils will faceoff in the second and final installment of the “Northway Rivalry” for the 2014-15 season. The Flames return home to the Civic Center on Wednesday, when the Hamilton Bulldogs come back to Glens Falls for the second time in as many weeks.
