Ben Bishop makes 46 saves in Binghamton Senators' 3-2 win over Toronto Marlies

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Ben Bishop put on a spectacular 46-save performance in goal as the Binghamton Senators held on to beat the Toronto Marlies 3-2 in American Hockey League play Thursday.

Shane Prince, Jakob Silfverberg and Patrick Wiercioch each scored for the Senators (8-4-2), who won their fourth straight game.

Carter Ashton and Matt Frattin replied for the Marlies (9-6-1).

Bishop was the difference when the Senators' defence failed in front of him. Toronto outshot Binghamton 20-7 in the second period, and 14-5 in the third.

Prince and Silfverberg scored in the first to give the Senators a 2-0 lead.

Ashton gave the Marlies their first goal 1:06 into the second, but despite dominating offensively Toronto couldn't beat Bishop.

Wiercioch added one more goal for Binghamton at 5:37 in the third. Frattin finally beat Bishop at 18:30 to make it 3-2, far too late for Toronto to add another goal against a hot goaltender.

Marlies goalie Ben Scrivens meanwhile stopped 22 shots.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
