Binghamton's week got off to a tough start, with losses to Adirondack and Portland, where Binghamton only scored two goals in both games and both scored by a lone player (Roman Wick against Adirondack and Jim O'Brien against Portland). The streak continued against Springfield, but Binghamton was able shutout the Falcons, and Corey Locke scored both goals. Binghamton broke their habit by scoring four goals in a win against Bridgeport that went into overtime. Ryan Potulny got his first point as a Binghamton Senator, and Kaspars Daugavins won the game in overtime with just 47 seconds left.

Binghamton is still fifth in the East Division with 79 points, and still has a playoff spot with a three-point lead over the Worcester Sharks in the Atlantic Division.

No true Ottawa prospects in Elmira, but after the weekend they had, a little extra talent wouldn't hurt. Elmira was outscored 16-10 in their weekend series against rival Reading, winning only one game. The week started off great with the Jackals getting their first shootout win of the season over the Trenton Devils and a wild 8-5 win over Reading. However the next game Reading destroyed Elmira with a 9-2 loss that ended their season-long point streak at seven games, and Reading cliched the division on Sunday with a 2-0 shutout win over Elmira.

Elmira is second place in the Atlantic division, and seventh in the Eastern conference with 71 points.

Jared Cowen and Spokane Chiefs will start the WHL playoffs against the Chilliwack Bruins in the first round. Cowen finished the year second among Chiefs defencemen in scoring, sixth in overall team scoring, and sixth in the league in plus-minus. Mark Stone won five team awards (MVP, Top Manitoba-born player, Most Sportsmanlike player, Three-Star trophy and Top Scorer), and is the only Ottawa Senators prospect to score over 100 points in any league this season. Stone will face recently-signed junior prospect Wacey Hamilton and the Medicine Hat Tigers in the first round of the WHL playoffs.

HV71 was swept by bottom seed AIK IF, 4-0. Andre Petersson wasn't able to play in any of the games with a leg injury that has kept him off the ice since January. David Rundblad finished the year as the league's top defensemen in scoring and third overall (behind teammates Joakim Lindström and Mikko Lehtonen). Skelleftea AIK defeated Linkopings HC in seven games, Rundblad had four points (1G/3A) and played in all seven games. Brynas IF season ended with a 4-1 series lost to Farjestads BK.
