Holy Game Two Bears’ fans! What a thriller! I wasn’t sure that the boys could outdo Game One’s OT winner, but outdo themselves they did. The Hershey Bears rallied from a 4-2 deficit to win 5-4. Chris Bourque had two goals on the night, including the gamewinner with a little over 30 seconds left in the third. When you need big goals, Chris Bourque is your guy. Get ready for some photos of happy Bears. 🙂

No, the Bears didn’t just score. They’re just happy to shove each other in warm ups.

I think that’s the most emotion I’ve ever seen out of Riley Barber. He’s pretty stoked, huh?
Things weren’t looking too hot in the first. It seemed like the penalty box was full all period.

The Bears hold on for the rest of the period, putting them up 2-0 on the best of five series against the Phantoms.
