Senators beat Markstrom, Comets

Chris Wideman‘s second power-play goal of the night came 4:21 into overtime and gave the Binghamton Senators a 4-3 win over the Utica Comets at the Memorial Auditorium in Utica on Friday night.

Wideman leads all AHL defensemen in goals (6) and points (11) on the season.

The game began with the spotlight on Comets goaltender Jacob Markstrom, who was less than two scoreless periods away from establishing a new AHL record for the longest shutout streak. But Markstrom’s bid for history ended 5:55 into the contest when Alex Guptill notched his first professional goal, the first goal allowed by Markstrom in 238:08.

Alex Grant gave Binghamton a 2-0 lead late in the first period and Wideman opened up a 3-0 cushion early in the second, but Utica raced back to tie the game on goals by Travis Ehrhardt, Frank Corrado and Henrik Tommernes.

Wideman’s overtime winner gave Binghamton a 2-2 record in OT this season; Utica fell to 0-2.
