November 6, 2023

The Belleville Senators were able to steal two points on their second Atlantic Division road trip of the season last week, dropping a decision in Springfield against the Thunderbirds, but winning an overtime thriller the following night against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

Here’s a recap of last week’s action, as the Sens get set to return home to CAA Arena for three games this week.


Friday November 3, 2023: Belleville Senators – 3 @ Springfield Thunderbirds – 6

The Belleville Senators will have to wait another season before getting another chance at their first win in Springfield, following a 6-3 loss at MassMutual Center on Friday night. Jiri Smejkal scored his first AHL goal, while Angus Crookshank and Egor Sokolov both counted for Belleville and Mads Søgaard stopped 25 of 29 shots in the loss.


Saturday November 4, 2023: Belleville Senators – 3 @ Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins – 2 (OT)

The Belleville Senators had their toughness and resolve on full display Saturday night, as they ground out a 3-2 overtime win on the road, against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh Penguins).

The Sens arrived in Wilkes-Barre in the early-morning hours, after their loss in Springfield on Friday, but were able to put the short rest and tough schedule behind them, with Angus Crookshank scoring his second of the season, Garrett Pilon tying the game in the final minute and Jacob Larsson netting his second overtime winner of the early season. Leevi Merilainen earned the win in net with a 27 save performance.
