Another Final Four Appearance for Hershey

Where would we in Hockey D.C. be without the springtime performance of the Hershey Bears as agony-salve? They did it again last night. Mathieu Perreault scored the equalizer with 1:13 to play in game 4 in Albany, then added the series-winner for good measure at the 2:23 mark of OT. Bears 5, River Rats 4, […]

More Leadership from Brooks Laich

Jay Beagle ended game 3 against the River Rats with just over 3 minutes remaining in the overtime session, giving Hershey a commanding 3-0 lead in […]
