Down On The Farm: Calder Cup ADF Edition, May 3rd
The Pirates are not in a good place right now. Down 3-1 on the road with lackluster effort on the ice and two goalies who aren’t performing as they should be. It’s not pretty.
Pirates walking the plank in Binghamton
Turnovers and penalties got the Portland Pirates into a hole they could not escape Monday night.
Sloppy play in their own zone caused the Pirates to face a series of strong early scoring chances and the Binghamton Senators used three power-play goals to roll to a 6-1 victory in Game Four of their Calder Cup second-round playoff series.
The win gives the Senators a 3-1 series lead and a chance to advance with a victory in Tuesday’s 7:05 game at the Broome County Arena.
“Execution was an issue,” Pirates coach Kevin Dineen said. “It’s something we have to correct and have a higher level of puck management.”
The Pirates are facing elimination on unfriendly ice. Game 5 is tonight at 7:05PM in Binghamton.
