There are five AHL clubs in New York State, the most of any state in the league. Those five teams vying for the 2010-11 Empire State Cup are: Adirondack Phantoms (Philadelphia Flyers), Albany Devils (New Jersey Devils), Binghamton Senators (Ottawa Senators), Rochester Americans (Florida Panthers) and Syracuse Crunch (Anaheim Ducks). The records below indicate the head-to-head standings between the five thus far this season.
Most Recent Update: January 14, 2011 @ Albany: Albany Devils 3 Binghamton Senators 2. Goals by Jacob Josefson, AHL All-Star Matt Anderson and Louis Robitaille enable the Albany Devils to top the Binghamton Senators 3-2 Friday night in Albany. For Robitaille the goal was his second of the year and second winner of the year in an Empire State Cup contest, the first coming in a 2-0 Devils win at Rochester. With the victory Albany leaps over Rochester in the Empire State Cup standings and closes to within four of Binghamton for the top spot.
The next round of action in the battle for the Empire State Cup comes Saturday night in Syracuse as the Crunch take on the Amerks.
