BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – The Binghamton Senators, in conjunction with the American Hockey League, announced the full 2015-16 regular season schedule that will see the B-Sens open the season against the Albany Devils in front of their home crowd at the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena on Saturday, October 10, at 7:05p.m.
The B-Sens are scheduled to face 12 of the 15 opposing teams in the newly aligned AHL Eastern Conference. Binghamton will face two of their New York State rivals, the Syracuse Crunch and Rochester Americans, in 10-game season series (five home, five away) with one of the Binghamton home games versus the Crunch being played at the Canadian Tire Centre on February 13.
Binghamton will play eight-game season series against their new division competition the Utica Comets, Albany Devils and St. John’s IceCaps. B-Sens fans will also see former division foes the Hershey Bears and Lehigh Valley Phantoms in eight-game sets.
Of the 37 home games played at the Arena this year, 31 will fall on the weekend, including 12 on Friday and 18 on Saturday. January will be the B-Sens busiest month with the team playing 13 games (six at home), while April will see a hectic nine-game schedule spread over just 17 days.
