Hershey Bears Win the Week (Photos)

img_3929What a whirlwind of a week it has been for Hershey Bears’ nation. We’ve said farewell to some players and welcomed another back in to the chocolate and white. Even with the recent changes, the Hershey Bears swept the weekend against some major competitors and are now tied for fourth place in the Atlantic Division. If this weekend is any indication of what to expect for the last few weeks of the season, look out Atlantic Division, the Hershey Bears are prowling for a playoff spot. Buckle up, baby. It’s Calder Cup or bust.

Still smiling even after Zach Sill smushed him into the glass.

Look at this guy! I still can’t believe he’s back.

What would warm ups be without a little pushing?

Pure concentration.

Find someone who looks at you like Zach Sill looks at Ryan Bourque

What would a rivalry night be without a little sparring?

Especially when Pheonix Copley decides he’s getting into the action and pushes down Hershey fan favorite, WBS forward Tom Sestito.

Of course, he got up with a vengeance.
img_4325
It’s okay though because Pheonix made 36 saves, helping the Bears secure the victory and a big two points against the Baby Pens.

It’s good to see you in chocolate and white again.

What a performance in his first game back at the GC.

Naturally, Pheonix is the first star of the game.

Welcome back, Pheonix.

All smiles when talking about trying to score in the empty net.

When you have to steal the mic just to say how happy you are to be back again.

I think we need to keep Monardo around. This line was working it all weekend.
