ALBANY, NY -- The Albany Devils are off to a perfect start to 2013, earning their second win in as many nights with a 5-2 victory against the Binghamton Senators Sunday at Times Union Center. Albany extends its winning streak to three games and the team is now 13-11-1-6.
Tim Sestito posted a goal and an assist and Eric Gelinas, Adam Larsson, Mattias Tedenby and Steve Zalewski each scored. In goal, Keith Kinkaid made 22 saves on 24 shots. He has now won eight of his last 10 contests.
Binghamton received goals from Patrick Wiercioch and Shane Prince. Between the pipes, Robin Lehner made 36 saves on 40 shots. The Senators came into the contest winners of their last five games, boasting a record of 8-1-0-1 in their last 10. They are now 21-8-1-2 overall.
Gelinas got the Devils on the board early with a blast from the point on the power play at 2:34 of the first. Sestito doubled Albany’s lead before the end of the first with his second goal of the weekend, banking a loose puck off a Binghamton defender at 15:11.
Wiercioch cut the Devils lead to one with a power-play tally at 5:53 of the second, beating Kinkaid with a shot from the right circle. Then Prince pulled the Senators even at 8:38 with a wrist shot from left circle.
In the third, Albany grabbed the last lead it would need at 11:11 on a tic-tac-toe play, which included four of the five skaters on the ice. Larsson was atop of the crease to finish the play, which featured assists from Harri Pesonen and Sestito.
The Devils struck again at 16:11 of the third when Gionta fed a streaking Tedenby to beat Lehner top corner. McKelvie was credited with the second assist on the goal giving him his fourth assist of the weekend.
Steve Zalewski added an empty-net goal at 17:58 of the third to seal the 5-2 win.
