–Jesse Winchester and Matt Gilroy return to the lineup while Rob Klinkhammer and Matt Carkner come out (ironically, the latter two players each had points last night, the first in nine games and first in eighteen respectively).
-Binghamton lost 2-1 in overtime to Syracuse last night, with Robin Lehner making 39 saves. Patrick Wiercioch scored the only goal, while Borowiecki, Dziurzynski, and Hamilton were a team low -2. Here’s the box score and Joy Lindsay‘s game summary.
–Patrick Wiercioch talked about the loss:
It’s been a long year, I feel like we’ve had a lot of those games where either we’ve been up a goal in the last five minutes, or we just couldn’t quite get in done in overtime. Robbie (Lehner) played phenomenal for us tonight, gave us a chance to even be in that game. Pretty disappointing that we couldn’t get him the two points.
-Elmira lost 4-3 in a shootout with Brian Stewart taking the loss. Bobby Raymond had an assist in Florida’s win.
–Central Scouting looks at the top prospects for the 2012 draft and makes the following comparisons (to be taken with a grain of salt):

Ryan Murray – Scott Niedermayer
Radek Faksa – Martin Havlat
