The Hershey Bears had a lot to celebrate this week. Not only did they earn six out of a possible six points on the week, they celebrated Chris Bourque’s 600th game on Friday, as well as, Garrett Mitchell’s 300th game and Head Coach Troy Mann’s 100th win on Saturday. Let’s check out some of the action from Saturday’s home game.
