Final tied up

Jim O’Brien scores in overtime, sending Binghamton back home with a split of the first two games at Houston in the final. The teams had traded goals in the first five minutes, then played 60-plus without a goal, despite penalties late in regulation and early in overtime.

Wednesday, Friday, Saturday in Binghamton. That was the last NHL or AHL game in May, but Sunday’s a big one in the Memorial Cup: Saint John vs. Casey Cizikas and the St. Mike’s Majors for the championship, 7 p.m. Live on NHL Network, for those who have.

Chris Botta with Michael Picker, who says that Charles Wang does intend to cover any cost overrun on the new Coliseum. The former Islanders president takes pains to say that it’s not final, but it’s nice to hear.

Hey, wait, we… Oh.

And RIP, Gil Scott-Heron and Dana Brand.
