ALLENTOWN, PA. — Unfortunately, the Hershey Bears five game win streak came to an end this evening, but the Chocolate and White managed to pick up a point on the night, extending their point streak to six games.
Hobbs scored the Bears’ lone goal in the first period, and the Phantoms would tie the game in third on a 5 on 3 power play. The Bears commanded most of the play, outshooting the Phantoms 41-27 at the end of the night, but the game came down to skills, and Greg Carey brought it home scoring the only goal in the shootout.

Help I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.
O’Brien sucks is a regular chant in PPL Center, but he still tosses a puck over to the fans. Classy.
Some scary iron action.
Hobbs hits the back fo the net.
What’s going on in this photo?
Malenstyn was checked into the bench, and Barber is not having any of it.
The Phantoms goalie is out of the net and the puck goes behind it. Classic.
If you’re not hyping your goalie, why do you even play the game?
I think Goulbourne jokingly asked Walker if he wanted to go because they accidentally bumped in to each other. Walker just smiles.
Lewington back checking to stop the Phantoms’ Michael Huntebrinker during OT.
Face off game.
Sgarbossa misses in the shootout.
You win this one Phantoms – until next time.
