PORTLAND, ME – Robin Lehner turned aside all 36 shots he faced for his first playoff shutout to lead the Binghamton Senators to a 3-0 win in Game 6 of the Atlantic Division Finals and eliminate the Portland Pirates from playoff contention.


GAME 6 BOX SCORE

The Senators won the best-of-seven series, 4-2.

O’Brien opened the scoring only 25 seconds into the game on a goal that turned out to be the game winner and the only goal of the first. Smith struck on the power play in the second to make it 2-0 Binghamton and Daugavins scored into the empty net late in the third to complete the scoring.
