Hennessy lifts B-Sens to overtime win

Josh Hennessy scored his second goal of the game 56 seconds into overtime to give Binghamton a 5-4 win at Manchester on Sunday evening.

Hennessy, who had 24 goals as a rookie with Cleveland last season, has scored five times in his last four games.

On the winning goal, Andrew Ebbett danced around a Manchester defender along the boards, worked his way towards the net and dished off to Hennessy, who gave Binghamton the victory.

Jeff Heerema and Ryan Vesce had a goal and an assist each for the Senators, who ended a stretch of five straight road contests at 2-2-0-1.

Each team scored three power-play goals in the game, with Binghamton going 3-for-5 and Manchester going 3-for-6.

Noah Clarke, Lauri Tukonen and T.J. Kemp each had a goal and an assist for the Monarchs, who have seen six of their seven games this season decided by a single goal.

Jean-Marc Pelletier made 25 saves in regulation and overtime and turned aside three of four attempts in the shootout to lead Rochester to a 2-1 win over Syracuse at the Blue Cross Arena.

Pelletier was making his first appearance of the season for the Americans, who have been carrying three goaltenders on their roster.

Rochester’s Michael Ryan and Syracuse’s Mark Hartigan traded power-play goals in regulation. Drew Stafford, Drew Larman and Greg Jacina converted in the shootout for the Amerks.

Ty Conklin made 35 saves for the Crunch, who earned five of a possible six points over the weekend after starting the season at 0-6-0-0.

Tomas Fleischmann recorded a goal and an assist for his sixth consecutive two-point game, leading Hershey to a 4-1 win over Philadelphia at the Wachovia Center on Sunday night.

The Bears improved to 7-0-0-1 on the season with their sixth straight road win.

Fleischmann, who led Hershey in playoff scoring during their 2006 Calder Cup championship run last spring, now has eight goals and five assists for 13 points in seven contests for the Bears in 2006-07.

Chris Bourque, Tyler Sloan and Eric Fehr also scored for Hershey, while Jonas Johansson and Lawrence Nycholat recorded two assists each.

Nolan Baumgartner had the goal for the Phantoms, who dropped their fifth in a row.
