The Senators will host Game 2 on Friday night, 7 p.m., at CAA Arena in Belleville and, if necessary, the third-and-deciding contest Sunday at 3 p.m. as well.
ROCHESTER 4 BELLEVILLE 3 OT
“You have to give Rochester credit. They kept working and pushing. It was a well-played hockey game. It’s just unfortunate we didn’t get the win.”#BellevilleSens HC Troy Mann on tonight's series opening overtime loss.
