Nick Paul's first-ever AHL goal came at quite the convenient time for the Binghamton Senators on Saturday, as it lifted them to a tight-checking 2-1 win over the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
Paul's goal came with 4:20 to play, and the Phantoms (14-15-1) were not able to force a tie. The goal came just 4:17 after Colin McDonald scored the Phantoms' first and only goal of the night -- his first of the season as well. The Phantoms were not able to get too many opportunities on Matt O'Connor, as they mustered a total of 23 shots. They scored no more than nine shots in each period, and recorded a lowly five shots in the second period alone.
