Hershey Bears Earn Thrilling OT Win on Teddy Bear Toss Night (Photos)

And the Teddy Bear Toss night scorer is…. Liam O’Brien! What. A. Game. I feel like Teddy Bear Toss always brings a little extra anxiety for the players, since there’s even more pressure to score, but the Bears got it done with an awesome OT win. Read the game recap, check out some clips from Liam’s teddy-bear-unleashing goal, and keep scrolling for some photos from the night!

Pheonix was pretty excited about the W, too.

I’ve said it before, but happy bears are the best bears.

Da Bears win the week!

Stick salute until next weekend, boys.

Nice bounce back win for Pheonix after the loss in Allentown on Friday.

Fist bumps for everyone.

O’Brien was only second star of the game, but I’m giving him number one star.

Two goals on the night. Way to go, Liam!
