What a relief! After a nine-game losing streak, the Hershey Bears were able to earn a win in the shootout. It was nice to see the boys turn things around after playing hard, but not picking up wins lately. It was quite the thriller, too. Hershey was up by three then Charlotte tied it, and the goals kept coming from there. In the end, the Bears would come out on top with a 6-5 SO victory. The Checkers and Bears rematch on Super Bowl Sunday – let’s hope it kicks off a win streak for the Chocolate town. Check out the full-game recap and keep scrolling for photos from the game.
Nathan Walker starts off the game with a goal just 49 seconds into it.

How about some more goal hugs? The Captain nets a big goal to put the Bears up 3-0.
It was back-to-back Mitchell fights. First Garrett dropped ’em, and then Mason jumped in.
I don’t know how the trainers do it.
Charlotte scores. Womp. Womp.
I know the glass made it a little weird, but I still loved Nathan’s reaction to Travis Boyd’s game-tying goal.
Boyder getting it done!
Chris Bourque scores in the shootout.
Bourque’s goal had to be reviewed and was eventually ruled a good goal. Hobbs is pretty happy about it.
Vitek denies Saarela.
What a reach!
Hobbs is impressed.
The bench reaction after Travis Boyd scores to put the Bears ahead in the shootout.
And finally Vanecek works his magic on Kuokkanen.
Da Bears win!
The boys skate out to a celebrating Vitek Vanecek.
After every win, Nathan’s helmet is never on right.
See what I’m talking about.
This guy coming up big on the night!
And finally the number one star Travis Boyd hands out a stick to a young fan.
