HERSHEY, PA — For game two of the season, the Hershey Bears took on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The matchup was also affiliation night for the Chocolate and White as the Stanley Cup, Slapshot, and the Red Rockers came to town. Fans lined up and waited for hours for a quick photo with the greatest trophy in sports – the Stanley Cup. It was a nice way for fans in Hershey to get a chance to see the cup and see some formers Bears’ names engraved in all its glory.
As far as the game goes, the Bears unfortunately dropped back-to-back games to start the season. Not the best start, but there are plenty more games to go – this is only the beginning! After the game, the fans could bid on the game worn Caps-themed jerseys the boys donned.
