The 28-year-old has had a successful career in both the AHL and NHL, including a career season with Hershey this year, but a recall to Washington as an extra body late in the year found him sitting a lot to finish off the year.

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.

During a game in February 2010, Mathieu Perreault would score four goals against Bridgeport in a 9-2 clobbering of the Sound Tigers. That was the last time a Bears player scored four goals in a game. Over 2,500 days later, that “days since last four-goal game” poster got reset.

Paul Carey has been super hot as of late. But coming into Saturday night’s game, not may people would have predicted the performance he would put on. Midway through the first period, Carey would score his 20th and Hershey’s first goal of the game. Almost 20 minutes later, Carey would put home his second goal of the night. Then with nine minutes left in the third, Carey would complete the hat trick to put Hershey up for good.

“I was excited,” Copley recalled about when he was told he would be returning to central PA and the Bears. “I’m familiar with the coaches and the area. The support you get here is awesome, so I was very excited.
