After starting the season with only one win in the first four games, the Binghamton Senators are now in third place in the East Division of the AHL with a 4-3 record.
They went 2-1 this past weekend, in large part because Denis Hamel woke up: he's got 6 points in his last two games (3G ,1A versus the Scranton/Wilkes Barre Penguins, 2A versus the Rochester Americans) to give him 9 points in 8 games on the season.
Defensive prospect Brian Lee is tied with Hamel for the team lead in points with 1 goal and 8 assists in eight contests. The Russians aren't far behind, Alexander Nikulin leading the way with 7 points (1G, 6A) and Ilya Zubov close with 6 (2G, 4A).
The B-Sens have two games this weekend, on Friday against the Bridgeport Sounds Tigers (3-4, fourth in the East) and Saturday against the Syracuse Crunch (3-7, sixth in the North).
