MONTREAL, QUEBEC – The Hamilton Bulldogs (22-23-1-4) will look to earn at least a point for the fourth time in their past five games when they host the Binghamton Senators (32-15-1-3) at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Tonight’s game marks the second time the Bulldogs have faced the Senators this season, as well as the only home game Hamilton will have versus Binghamton in 2013-2014. In the first meeting between these two teams this season back on February 8th, the ‘Dogs overcame an early 3-0 deficit to edge the Sens 5-4 in overtime at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.

Binghamton has been on a roll as of late, earning points in four straight contests. The American Hockey League’s East Division leaders have out-scored their competition 18-5 in their past three games.

Hamilton has earned points in three of its past four games, but is also currently struggling at home, dropping five straight home games. The Bulldogs are looking to rebound from a 4-1 loss to the San Antonio Rampage this past Monday.

Quick Notes
- Tonight’s game is a bit of a homecoming for five Quebec-born Bulldogs: forwards Maxime Macenauer, Louis Leblanc, Gabriel Dumont and Stefan Fournier, as well as defenceman Joel Chouinard.
- Nine ‘Dogs have also played for the Montreal Canadiens this season: forwards Mike Blunden, Louis Leblanc, Joonas Nattinen, Patrick Holland, Gabriel Dumont, Christian Thomas and Martin St. Pierre, as well as defencemen Jarred Tinordi and Nathan Beaulieu. - Binghamton forward Mike Hoffman is second in the AHL in points with 64. He has nine points (four goals, five assists) in his past four games.
- Hamilton forward Martin St. Pierre is currently riding a six-game point streak, which is both a team-high assist streak and point streak this season.
