Playing a back-to-back series against the same team means that adversaries are able to learn the first night, and better execute the second. When a team blows out their opponent in the first game of such a match-up, they often go on to win the second, as well. This, however, was not the case for […]
If someone had said after the opening week that the Hershey Bears would not only be at .500 in November, but that their excellent special teams play would be key to that success, they would have been laughed right out of the Giant Center. However, here we are, with those same Hershey Bears overcoming the […]
The youth movement in Hershey continued to show results on Saturday evening, as the Bears topped rival club Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins for the second time this season, prevailing with a 4-3 shootout victory.
