HERSHEY, PA — The Hershey Bears have one game remaining in the regular season. In their second to last game, the Bears took down the Utica Comets 4-1. Jayson Megna picked up his 20th goal of the season, and for assist markers, Mike Sgarbossa tallied his 35th and Aaron Ness hit his 50th helper tonight – a career high for both players.
After tonight’s win, the Bears announced the playoff schedule for their first round matchup against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The best-of-five series will start with two games in Bridgeport and have Game 3 and 4 (if needed) in Hershey (see the full schedule here).
The Chocolate and White will look to sweep the regular season matchups against the Harford Wolf Pack on Sunday. Their final game of the season will be Fan Appreciation Night and some lucky fans will go home with jerseys right from their favorite players. It should be a good night before the playoffs kick off.

After every win, it’s essential to pick up Walker. I love DSP laughing in the background.
