Two Goals from Riley Barber Help Hershey Bears Defeat Grand Rapids Griffins 6-4 (Photos)

HERSHEY, PA. — The Hershey Bears are starting the New Year off right with a big 6-4 win over the Grand Rapids Griffins. A lot going on in tongiht’s win: Riley Barber had two goals on the evening, Shane Gersich scored in his return from injury, Ryan Sproul scored against his former team, Garrett Pilon notched three assists, Vanecek stopped 35 of 39 shots, and Aaron Ness got one goal and two assists. Garret Pilon’s three-point night was a career high, and Aaron Ness tied his career high in points, as well. 

The win tonight also marked the Bears’ first victory against the Griffins at home in franchise history. This is also the fourth time this season the Bears have scored six goals in a game – the most they’ve tallied in a single game this season.

Big goal in Gersich’s return from injury.

So happy.

Dylan McIlrath always makes his presence known out there.

He was trying to pick a fight with anyone tonight.

The defensemen give Vitek some love after a great two periods.

All of the boys looking up at the jumbotron to see if Barber would get credited for his second goal of the game.

It’s a goal for Ryan Sproul.

These two. We can’t get enough.

Ness gave his stick to that baby and then waved at him. I think the audience melted from how adorable it was.

Three assists – not to shabby for the rookie.

How many goals did you score Barber? Two! You’re right. (I’m sorry for making that joke.)
