Weekly Recap: November 6, 2023 – November 12, 2023

November 13, 2023

It was a successful three-game homestand for the Belleville Senators last week, as the club picked up four-of-six points, during matchups against the Syracuse Crunch (Tampa Bay Lightning) and Cleveland Monsters (Columbus Blue Jackets) at CAA Arena. Here’s a recap of last week’s action, as the Sens get set for another trio of games this week.


Wednesday November 8, 2023: Belleville Senators – 3 vs Syracuse Crunch – 2 (Shootout)

The Belleville Senators continue to display a flair for the dramatic early in this American Hockey League campaign. For the fourth time in their last five games, 60 minutes wasn’t enough, as the Sens edged past the Syracuse Crunch (Tampa Bay Lightning) 3-2 in a shootout on Wednesday night. Max Guenette (PP) and Zack Ostapchuk (SH) scored for the Sens in regulation, with Josh Currie burying the shootout winner.  


Friday November 10, 2023: Belleville Senators – 2 vs Cleveland Monsters – 4

It was a frustrating night for the Belleville Senators at CAA Arena on Friday, as they dropped a 4-2 decision to the Cleveland Monsters (Columbus Blue Jackets). Josh Currie and Cole Reinhardt scored late goals for Belleville, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a slow start out of the gate. Mads Sogaard took the loss in net, making 22 saves.


Sunday November 12, 2023: Belleville Senators – 2 vs Cleveland Monsters – 1 (Overtime)

The Belleville Senators got some payback on the Cleveland Monsters, after their Friday loss to their divisional rival, picking up a 2-1 overtime victory at CAA Arena on Sunday afternoon. Egor Sokolov scored a late-first period game tying goal and Angus Crookshank was the overtime hero, while Leevi Merilainen made 37 saves.
