The Binghamton Senators won 4-3 in overtime last night to complete a four game sweep of the Charlotte Checkers and advance to the Calder Cup Final. Captain Ryan Keller scored the clinching goal 13:05 into the first overtime period. With the win, rookie goaltender Robin Lehner improved to 4-0 in his career in playoff overtime games. Lehner has now played 62:51 of overtime hockey without allowing a goal, making 31 saves in more than a full game's worth of overtime action.
