 B-Sens tough weekend at home leads to intensified playoff push BELLEVILLE, ON – A busy three-in-three weekend has led to some significant change in the AHL’s North Division standings after the Belleville Sens suffered a pair of defeats to the Laval Rocket and a loss to the Hartford Wolf Pack. The B-Sens still control their fate, with nine of their remaining 10 games being played inside the division, including four more against Laval. Here’s a recap of last week’s action, as the Club gets set for a couple of games on the road in Laval, with the playoff push continuing.
Friday March 22, 2024: Belleville Senators – 2 vs Laval Rocket – 3 (OT)

It was another hard-fought divisional game for the Belleville Sens, as they welcomed the Laval Rocket to begin a 3-in-3 set on home ice, but it was the visitors who came away with a 3-2 win in overtime. Despite Tarun Fizer’s first career AHL goal and Wyatt Bongiovanni’s first as a Senator, along with 16 saves from Mads Sogaard, the Belleville offence couldn’t break through in overtime.
