Port Huron, MI - The Binghamton Black Bears defeated the Port Huron Prowlers on Saturday night, by a final score of 3-2. Austin Thompson scored the game winning goal on the power play with 1:10 remaining in the third period.

Period two began with the Prowlers taking their first lead of game. Dalton Jay threw a puck towards the net, and it redirected off a Black Bears’ leg into the net. Nikita Ivashkin attempted to tie the game on a breakaway but was turned aside by the goaltender. The Black Bears stuck with the play and led to the tying goal at 2-2. Colan Fitzgerald drove a shot from the point that was redirected by Ivashkin for his 32nd goal this year. Binghamton was being outshot by 10, but held a tie on the scoreboard.
