Conor Riley broke the scoreless deadlock with four minutes to go in the first period when his centering pass deflected off of a Comets’ defender and past Demko. Kero tied the game a minute and a half later, depositing a rebound over the shoulder Devils goaltender Cam Johnson. Boucher had the assist.

John Edwardh regained the lead for Binghamton three and a half minutes into the second period. Boucher answered halfway through the second period with a one-timer on the power play. Kero and Zack MacEwen tallied the assists. Ryan Schmelzer put the Devils back on top at the 16:15 mark of the middle frame. The Comets had several chances to tie the game in the final four minutes of the period but the visitors would take a 3-2 lead into the second intermission.

Edwardh struck again early in the third to double Binghamton’s lead. Archibald put the Comets back within one when he stripped a Devils’ defender and beat Johnson over the blocker with five and a half minutes to go in regulation. The Comets through everything they had at Binghamton in an effort to tie the game but were stunted by the Devils defense.
