Trailing 2-1 Saturday night in Springfield, Hershey would even the score at the 15:17 mark of the second period on a highlight reel goal from Zach Sanford. 

With Hershey shorthanded, Sanford skated the puck down the left wing, toe-dragged around forward Sena Acolatse to the middle of the ice, and lifted a backhander over the glove of Berra to make it 2-2.
