HERSHEY, PA — The Hershey Bears are one win away from moving on to the division finals. In the best-of-five series against Bridgeport, Hershey now leads 2-1 with Game 4 scheduled for Thursday at the Giant Center.
In tonight’s matchup, Liam O’Brien would get the Bears on the board in the first. The Sound Tigers would tie it up towards the end of the first, and the game would remain tied until Ryan Sproul scored the gamewinner at the beginning of the third.
Can the Bears get a much needed W on Thursday? Let’s hope so fans! For more on tonight’s matchup, check out our full-game recap and keep scrolling for photos from the game.
