The Hershey Bears hosted the Binghamton Senators Wednesday night before a sold-out Giant Center, and behind goals from Hubert Labrie, Tom Gilbert, and Riley Barber, Hershey took a 3-1 victory tonight. Pheonix Copley backstopped the Bears to the win.
The Hershey Bears visited the Bridgeport Sound Tigers for the last time this season with a lot on the line with the teams separated by only two points in the standings. For the first time in four contests in Bridgeport, Hershey took the game on a clutch power play goal from Travis Boyd and won the game with an empty net goal by a final of 3-1.
Unlike both of the games the Bears played at home this weekend, this game was a defensive showdown as many of the contests between these two clubs have been. The game was scoreless for the entire first period, and it was scoreless until Bridgeport’s Ross Johnston beat Pheonix Copley early in the second period.
The Hershey Bears defeated the Hartford Wolf Pack for the second time in as many nights behind four goals from Paul Carey. Hershey gets two more points to stay in fourth with rivals Bridgeport and Providence winning on this evening.
The Bears came out flying and were rewarded for their hard work as Carey picked up the puck and snapped a perfect shot over the glove of Mackenzie Skapski to make it 1-0 for the home team.
The Hershey Bears hosted the Hartford Wolf Pack looking for 2 points and hopefully advancing into a playoff spot for the first time since January. A back and forth game ended up with an overtime winner from Christian Djoos to give the Bears a 4-3 win.
After a quiet first period, the Bears found themselves behind in the second as Hartford’s Matt Carey tipped in a point shot to give the Wolf Pack the first lead of the game.
Hershey responded under 50 seconds later, as Christian Djoos drove the slot and fed Paul Carey to tie the game at one apiece.
Parker Milner made his first start in Chocolate Town for the Hershey Bears on Saturday night and impressed the 10,456 fans at Giant Center. 29 saves in his second win of the season promises Hershey they will win the week as they take down St. John’s, 5-2.
After a disappointing beginning to the 2017 calendar year, the Hershey Bears finished off the month of January strong with points in three straight. After almost a week off for the All-Star break, the picked right back up where they left off, beating the Binghamton Senators 5-3 Friday night.
The Hershey Bears lost to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers 4-3 in a shootout Saturday night. Jakub Vrana, Riley Barber, and Chandler Stephenson found the back of the net for the Bears, but it wouldn’t be enough as Bridgeport would only need one shootout goal to take the extra point.

We’ve have to say our favorite is Nathan Walker sitting in his locker stall seat storage compartment.
The Hershey Bears are one of the hottest team in the AHL right now, and nothing is stopping them. On Sunday night, they extended their winning streak to five games. With goals from Christian Thomas, Riley Barber, Nathan Walker, Garrett Mitchell, and Aaron Ness, along with a 21-save preformance from Joe Cannata, Hershey took all six possible points avaiable this weekend.
