April 26, 2023 - Binghamton Black Bears News Release

Black Bears are 2-3-1 vs. the Hat Tricks this season.
BINGHAMTON- The Binghamton Black Bears are getting ready to take on the Danbury Hat Tricks in the semifinal round of the Commissioner's Cup Playoffs. This will be the 2nd time in as many years that the two clubs have met each other in the playoffs.

THE SEASON SERIES

Danbury took the first three matchups of the season 5-1, 5-4 OT, and 6-2. Binghamton was only able to manage one point in the first trio of contests.

Since Coach Sherwood took over, Binghamton has seen better success against the division winners. The Black Bears were able to go 2-1-0 in the final three battles of the season including a massive 6-2 victory at home and a 4-3 OT win on the road. The one loss under Sherwood came on February 17th as the Hat Tricks were able to deflect a puck in with four seconds remaining in the game.

A lot has changed since the last time the two teams faced-off with each other. Fans should expect a tight-checking, physical affair when the semifinal begins Friday night in Binghamton.

ROUND ONE BLOWOUTS

Both teams ran their respective round one opponents out of the building. Danbury handed Elmira a 7-2 and 7-1 defeat in their two-game sweep . Binghamton was able to score six goals in both victories over the defending champs, Watertown, 6-2 and 6-1. While Danbury gave up the first goal early in both games, they surged backed, going on to outscore Elmira 14-3 in their weekend series.

Through the 56-game schedule, Danbury finished ninth in the league with a 16.7% success rate on the power play. Their penalty kill was dependable at 82.4% , third overall. Looking at the small sample size, the Hat Tricks were able to kill 100% of the Mammoth power plays, and scored 33% on theirs.

Binghamton had the best power play all season long, scoring 69 goals and converting 27% of the time. They did however, give up 13 short-handed goals, tied for most in the league.
