A Legacy PK Effort by the Bears

The Hershey Bears held off the Charlotte Checkers in a Saturday matinee at Giant Center today, 1-0, the only goal coming off the stick of Sheldon Souray. It was Hershey’s sixth win in a row. Braden Holtby earned his fifth shutout of the season in the process, and the game’s no. 1 star, stopping 24 Checker shots. Can’t quibble with that designation, but if ever a game’s penalty killers deserved first star status, it was Hershey’s today. Check out their labor — and when have you ever heard of a hockey team being afforded nearly a dozen power plays and placing fewer than 25 shots on net?

    Good defensive game, thanks Banfield! At least Pogge didn’t have another tantrum and flip the net over!
