Wahoo! The Hershey Bears are on to the next round! After the Lehigh Valley Phantoms forced a Game 5 on Saturday, the Hershey Bears bounced back with a win on Sunday. Much like the Metropolitan Division in the NHL, the Atlantic Division is quite stacked and it’s a shame that the Phantoms are out in the first round. The boys will return to the Giant Center on their quest for the Calder Cup this weekend against the Providence Bruins.

Hockey is the greatest. One team wins, one team loses, but it always ends in handshakes and hugs.
They just moved on to the second round feeling.
Have I mentioned before how happy I am this guy is back? I did. Well, let me say it again. So glad you’re back Pheonix.
