The Hershey Bears’ week wasn’t off to a great start, earning a 7-2 loss in Allentown against their Atlantic Division competitor, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The good news is the Bears hit the ice for back-to-back games at home and still have a chance to “win the week” as Head Coach Troy Mann likes to say. Read the full recap and check out some of the action below.
John Albert returns to the lineup after a few weeks out with an injury.
And this ham is back, too! (Or was back – he got re-injured this game 🙁 )
Another Bear is back?! Aaron Ness returns to the blue line after being sent down from Washington. Welcome back Nessie!
Chris Bourque is amped that he got the gang-up-on-the-goalie goal in warmies.
Pheonix Copley corrals the puck from Phantoms forward Tyrell Goulbourne.
It’s good to have Aaron Ness back.
Zach Sill jumps out of the way of the shot
Garrett Mitchell gets the Bears on the board.
At least they were happy Bears at one point during the game.
And after Mitchy’s goal it was a lot of this.
Chris Bourque slaps away a loose puck in front of Copley.
The Bears hit the ice for the third period.
Fresh from his NHL recall, Danick Martel carries the puck towards Copley.
Lewie working hard out there.
Zach Sill’s face after Phantoms’ Aube-Kubel scored basically sums up this game.
O’Brien makes it 5-2.
Copley is pulled for the extra attacker, but the Phantoms would go on to score two more, making a final score of 7-2. We’ll get ’em next time!
