Bears, Sharks Playoff Series Set to Begin – 4/24

By: Cassie Burgess for

Tonight in Worcester, Massachusetts, the Hershey Bears will face off in Game One of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. After concluding the season with a 5-1 victory over the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on April 18th, the Bears have found themselves in a post-season battle of land and sea as they face-off against the seventh-seeded Worcester Sharks in round one. The Bears battled the Sharks four times (2-1-0-1) during the 2014-15 regular season.

Ecc13_sample6ach of the four regular season meetings  were decided by one goal, and both teams walked away with five points in the series matchup.

Since claiming the East Division title and nabbing the second seed in the Eastern Conference with a final record of 46-22-5-3, the Bears will have to maintain a heavy forecheck and continue to block shots against a young, offensive team in the Sharks.

Although the Bears have not had a playoff game since losing to the Providence Bruins in the first round on May 8, 2013, the Sharks have not found themselves in a post-season matchup in four years. Additionally, this series against Hershey will be just the fourth Calder Cup playoff appearance for Worcester.

Concluding the regular season at 41-29-4-2, Worcester has found the majority of its firepower this year in its rookie players. Center Evan Trupp and forward Ryan Carpenter have combined for 74 points this year as four of the top 12 Sharks’ scorers are rookies this season.

With Tim Kennedy, Chris Conner and Casey Wellman peaking at 50+ points and each JustSports Photographysitting at Hershey’s top three point rankings, the trio has had their own individual accomplishments this season. Conner tied his AHL single-season career high in goals with 19, while Wellman surpassed his career stats all-around with 25 goals and 29 assists for 54 points.

With goaltender Philipp Grubauer still on recall to the Washington Capitals, Pheonix Copley will sit between the pipes for Hershey in his first AHL post-season game after capping his rookie year with a record of 17-4-3, a goals-against-average of 2.17 and a save percentage of .925 in 26 games played. Copley’s lone appearance against the Sharks this year was a 5-4 loss on November 1st.

Worcester’s rookie goaltender Aaron Dell (2.06 GAA, .927 SV%) split the two games he tended net in versus Hershey, earning a loss on November 22nd but winning on April 1st. Troy Grosenick (2.63 GAA, .906 SV%) also split his record against the Bears losing the March 18th matchup while victorious in his appearance on November 1st.  J.P. Anderson (2.17 GAA, .900 SV%) has yet to face the Chocolate and White.

There is a lot to look forward to in this matchup as both teams have notable strength and talent on their rosters. Because neither team has historically dominated the other, this round will ultimately come down to drive and who wants it more; making it a series with endless possibilities.

With that said, I have no doubt this post season is going to be one to remember.

We’re Back, and We’re On a Roll! – 2/28

By: Cassie Burgess

With the Hershey Bears more than halfway through the 2014-15 season, what better time to recap the last 54 games and honor some of the highlights the hometown team has had over the last five months.

With your Bears sitting confidently at the top of the East Division with a record of 33-14-5-2, the team currently sits tied for the crown of the Eastern Conference with the Manchester Monarchs at 73 points. Although the season has shown some areas of struggle, the teams’ success and strengths have certainly outshined the rough patches.

Let’s take a look at the prominent season highlights shall we?

January and February were no doubt prosperous months for Hershey. With the very last February game upon us, the Bears finished 8-1-0-1 in January and currently hold a 8-1-1-0 record heading into tonight’s final February game versus the Albany Devils.

JustSports PhotographyIt was the January 17th game versus the Devils that birthed a thirteen game point streak, with the Bears earning at least one point in the standings for thirteen consecutive games. Unfortunately, the streak was halted after losing to the Binghamton Senators, 3-5 on the road on February 20th.

Arguably the brightest and more notable focal points this year was Connor Carrick’s club milestone sniper past Lehigh Valley’s goaltender Anthony Stolarz on January 30th that brought the Hershey organization to 20,000 franchise goals. Carrick’s goal also helped the Bears to a dominating 6-1 victory over the Phantoms. It was certainly an exciting goal and  historical moment for Bears fans, as well as hockey fans all around.

So who have been this season’s stand-out stars to date?

JustSports Photography

Well, Tim Kennedy is an easy and appropriate answer. Leading the team with 44 points and ranking second in the American Hockey League in assists (39), he certainly has had a successful season thus far. Kennedy boasted a league-high point streak in assists earning one goal and 14 helpers in nine games between November 26th to December 14th. The star center is well on his way to surpassing his career-high 49 assists from when he was with the Portland Pirates for his rookie season in 2008-09.

Casey Wellman has also paraded his way into having a momentous season and has been, in my opinion, the most intriguing player to watch at this point. Whether the team is at home or on the road, the right winger never seems to miss a step as he has dressed in every single Bears game this season. Wellman’s 19 goals and 20 assists have already earned him his career best 39 points heading into March. He ranks second in the league in insurance marker goals (5) and already has remarkably twelve multi-point games so far.

It’s also impossible not to mention and partially designate this season’s success to goaltender Philipp Grubauer. Earning 36 starts to date, Number 31 has earned a rightful spot between the pipes for Hershey sitting at 22 wins, almost double what he earned last season (13). Grubauer’s 2.08 goals against average is also the fifth best in the AHL. Additionally, the Germany native has battled to victory 15 times on home ice, losing only three games at Giant Center this year. With that said, he is definitely someone who is going to continue to help the Bears climb the standings into the latter part of the season.

With a solid record heading into these final months, I can safely say that I, along with all the other Hershey Bears fans, will be looking forward to a potential playoff run in the postseason. Six of the remaining 13 road games will involve back-to-back road trips as the team will make their sole trip to Portland and St. Johns in the coming weeks, along with their final trip to Norfolk in April.

There is a lot to be excited about in the final stretch of what has been a very exciting hockey season. With how the team has been playing and the buzz that this year has induced, I have confidence that the remaining 22 games will not disappoint.

Galiev, Copley Steal the Show; Bears Win 3-1 in Allentown – 10/1

Washington Capitals Headshots

The guy in the photo above has talent.  And skill.  And moves.

The guy in the photo above has been making a large number of fans in the organization wonder what is wrong – wonder why he has not been able to stick in a lineup.

I suppose the guy in the photo above has not had an easy time of things over the past three seasons – most especially with frequent injury absences.

Two things I do know: 1) the guy in the photo above is a GOOD guy.  A really good guy.  And 2) watching how his game last night in Allentown progressed from so-so to WHOA leads me to believe that he is going to get another chance to prove himself.

Stan Galiev has become the star of the internet on this Thursday, and for good reason.  (Still don’t believe me?  Click here.)

Not only was his goal representative of an Xbox junkie’s controller, it stood as the game-winner in the Hershey Bears’ 3-1 victory over the Lehigh Valley Phantoms at the beautiful new PPL Center.

I really, really want to see Galiev get 60-65 games in a Bears uniform this season.  I want nothing more.  But in order for that to happen, many things have to come together – not just the three or four different toe-drags and dangles he pulled into one stellar move.

He needs to be a defensively-smart player, he needs to help cover for pinching defensemen, and he needs to be more physical.  We saw all three of those things get better – not outstanding, but better – as the game went on yesterday.  If that can continue all pre-season (provided he gets more than two games of action), I’ll be a happy camper.

Let’s not leave out some other top performances from last night.

1) Pheonix Copley.  Get used to hearing this name, fans.  (How can you not?  It’s the coolest name I’ve encountered in hockey so far!)  While I was talking with goaltending coach Scott Murray on our return trip last night, Copley came up to join Murray for a short video de-briefing… or at least I thought it was going to be short.  The two chatted for about 25 minutes.  I later asked Murray what Copley could possibly improve on from his performance (three one-on-one saves, point-blank pad flashes and explosive quickness for a guy who is 6-3 or 6-4), and he told me “he opens up just a bit sometimes, and it is one of the kind of things that could get him in trouble.  But he recovers to his feet so fast.  Just watch.”

I did.  And he did.  The kid is legitimate.  If you simply looked at his record last season at Michigan Tech, you wouldn’t expect much.  But expect a lot.  He is going to become a fan favorite to those who didn’t make the 74-mile venture last night.

2) Joel Broda.  A two-point performance, which included a shorthanded snipe a’ la Alex Giroux quickness, should have earned him second-star honors.  The forward was never out of place, played tireless penalty killing minutes, and was defensively very sound.  He should have been, having captained the Bakersfield Condors under Troy Mann last season.  And he has been around for a while.  I like this guy, and he is another player that I just can’t figure out would be classified as “on the bubble”.  I think we will see him for a good bit of games in Chocolate and White.

3) The penalty kill.  It was 8-for-8.  It (Copley especially) stopped four shots on :53 worth of 5-on-3 time against.  It conquered faceoffs.  It was aggressive.

It was really, really good.  And it ranked in the top 10 in all four years of Troy Mann’s tenure as Hershey assistant coach from 2009-2013.

4) Mike Moore & Erik Burgdoerfer.  Bryan Helmer’s top defensive pair had a really good night.  Moore is as steady as they come defensively.  And he is our Julien Brouillette of the upcoming season: the guy who doesn’t need to use a rocket of a shot, but the guy who, at any velocity, GETS THE PUCK ON NET.  Phantoms goaltender Anthony Stolarz, who in his own right is going to be a very good netminder, had a field day in making his first save thanks to a half-speed Moore point shot.  Besides his accuracy, Moore is the kind of guy that ANY team would want in their locker room.  And he helped Burgdoerfer, who I gave a really good rating in the first place, get even better as the game went on.  These two played a lot of minutes together, and they didn’t tire, at least to our eyes.

5) Tim Kennedy.  There is always one player who doesn’t get on the score sheet, yet plays such a sound game that you would vote him a star.  That was Tim Kennedy to me.  He was very good in the face-off circle, although I noticed that he seems to like the “push forward” method quite a bit – one that did take Lehigh Valley centers off guard at times.  He was also one of the most aggressive forecheckers in last night’s lineup.  Paired with rookie Caleb Herbert and winger Philippe Cornet on the top line, he led the trio to the best start to a Bears game than I have seen in a long time.  They got in zone fast, they hunted loose pucks, they wore down the Phantoms defense, and created two scoring chances right off the bat.  You can’t ask for much more.  With the Bears’ history of signing veterans in Hershey has often come criticism from fans.  If Kennedy plays like this, he too will bring no worries.  And that shouldn’t be too hard – we all have seen him as the opponent.  He is an NHL player.

2014-2015 Schedule Released – 8/27



It’s finally here.

The Bears, in conjunction with the American Hockey League upon approval from its Board of Governors, have released the 2014-2015 regular season schedule of games.

Right off the bat, here are my observations:

  • The Bears will either play at GIANT Center, or in their opponent’s building.  There are no neutral-site games this year.  That means we go back to Albany and don’t get Atlantic City.  :(
  • Nine of the Bears’ first 11 games will be played on the road.  So will 12 of their last 17.
  • The club gets an impressive string of 12 straight Saturday home games, December 13-February 28.
  • The longest homestand and longest road swing are both six games (November 22 – December 5, and March 11-21).
  • The Bears play on New Year’s Eve for the first time since 2011 – and first on the road since 2008.

And probably my least favorite points of all:

  • The Bears do not play a Western Conference opponent.

Do you know what that means?

  • For just the second time in 59 years, the two oldest franchises will not play in the regular season.

The Bears and Rochester Americans did not meet during the 2006-2007 campaign.  The teams played every other year since the Amerks’ inaugural 1956-57 season.


Anyway, get past the 12 games vs. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, 12 games vs. the new Lehigh Valley Phantoms, and 16 combined games against the Binghamton Senators and Norfolk Admirals – and it’s not a bad schedule.  (I KNOW I’m going to hear it for that comment.)

But hey… it’s hockey.

This is the greatest sport in the world.  I’d much rather call 76 games against division opponents than none at all.

And as for the delay?  #BlameLeBron.

Happy Schedule Release Day! – 8/27


Good morning Bears Nation, and happy Schedule Release Day, as this has become affectionately known!

All the waiting, hoping, surmising about who the Bears will play, complaining about playing Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 12 times per season, etc… ALL of that will commence shortly after 11:00 AM, when the American Hockey League is expected to release the 2014-2015 schedule of games.

It’s an AHL fan’s Christmas.  And it’s almost here.

Check back later today and be sure to visit  It will take a few hours or perhaps a day or two to populate the entire schedule for both web and smartphone use, but the schedule will be there in list form.

It also, of course, will be here on the blog.

Should There be a Pennsylvania Cup? – 7/30

Preseason 2014-15 Dates ReleaseHello and welcome back, Bears Nation!

I’ve admittedly taken some time off of blogging, but there was also a combination of technical issues that prevented me from posting here.  Updates will be much more frequent, especially beginning later in August, when we find out who we play, when we play them, how often we play them, and how long we’ll be away from home.

Today, we present a majority of the information you will need to get set for the 77th season of hockey here in Chocolatetown.  I’m stoked, to say the least.  Pre-season begins in just over two months, and it won’t be long until the puck drops “for real”, as they say.

The highlight of pre-season (is there such a thing…?  I’ll let you argue that!) is that the Bears will be the first (second…) team to christen the ice at Allentown’s brand-new PPL Center.  (I say first because the visiting team sometimes takes the ice first for pre-game skate.)  Either way, that’s going to be an exciting time for Flyers faithful, as the top AHL developmental affiliate of Philadelphia is finally back where they belong – in Pennsylvania.  Three PA teams will be in the AHL for the first time since the 2008-2009 season (R.I.P., ol’ Spectrum), and I can’t wait.  That’s why I have “Pennsylvania Cup” as a part of this post’s title.  I would LOVE to see that happen, even if it were for pre-season.  Heck, I miss the old I-81 Cup days (should be brought back, too, even if it was just a really cool name for bragging rights between Syracuse, Binghamton, W-B/Scranton and Hershey).

The Bears and Phantoms will also meet at the GC two days later, and the pre-season will wrap up with a home-and-home set against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

We would LOVE to see you at Giant Center in early October, fans.  This might be the first time in a LONG time that there will be actual prospects taking to the ice to battle for spots – not just those already destined to return to juniors or fly to South Carolina.  I can already hear some complaints, though… “won’t we be seeing these teams 38 more times this season anyway?”

Probably.  That’s the nature of the league right now… travel dollars just aren’t there for Western Conference crossovers unless you are in the Calder Cup finals.

But hey… it’s HOCKEY.  And it’s almost here.

Byers Plays 500 but Bears Fall – 3/1

JustSports Photography

Good morning Bears Nation!

If anyone thinks that the Bears should have won the game last night in Hartford (those of you who listened, to be fair), raise your hands.

I obviously can’t see you, but I can visualize – in much the same way that I hope you can, while listening to the games – what the response is.

I did too.

That game should have been at least 3-0 Hershey heading into the third period.  Instead, after Hershey fought for a 1-0 second-intermission lead, played smart hockey for 50:00 and got absolutely stellar goaltending from David Leggio, the team found themselves tied at one after 65 minutes of play.

Where did the game get away?  During the parade to the penalty box midway through the third.

Ryan Bourque was thus able to deflect a shot from Oscar Lindberg past Leggio while the Hartford Wolf Pack worked a lengthy 5-on-3 advantage, and give the hosts the boost of momentum they needed to go on for the extra standings point.

Hartford was outplayed and outchanced in the game at full strength.  Make no mistake about it.  The opportunities that the Bears were given were Grade-A.  Not that Hartford didn’t have their share, but the Bears had more.  Many more.  Trouble is, Dov Grumet-Morris was equally as good.

In a game of lopsided chances, you HAVE to execute, you HAVE to bear down, and you HAVE to finish.  Somehow.  Even if the opposing goaltender is frustrating you.

The Bears couldn’t.  And last night’s game – for as entertaining as it was through 60 minutes – ended up going to the dreaded skills competition and the Wolf Pack persevered.  Yes, I still call it “dreaded” even though the Bears won their previous five shootouts.  Games like this don’t need to be decided like that.

Either way, the Bears got one standings point out of a 2-1 shootout loss at XL Center last night.  The line of Dane Byers – Peter LeBlanc – Matt Watkins was outstanding, and not just because they worked for Hershey’s lone goal.  They worked hard all night.

You can tell that Byers had a bit of a swagger to him after celebrating the goal that LeBlanc scored, his 12th of the season.  The Bears captain (and former Hartford captain from 2009-2011) played the 500th game of his AHL career, in his old home rink, against the organization which selected him.  Pretty neat how things come full circle.

Check out my “Roaring on the Road” feature, which includes some great stuff on Byers from his time in Hartford and his words prior to the team departing for the Connecticut capital in case you missed it.  (I just realized what “ICMYI” means, which ends up in tweets every day that I read.  That’s pretty sad, actually, that I just figured that out.  I will NEVER write it again though.)

The standings point was nice, because it allowed the Bears to vault the Providence Bruins and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for 7th place in the Eastern Conference.  But, the opposite side of the coin has tarnish – it was the fourth consecutive defeat suffered by the Bears.  That is a new season high, friends, and it needs to stop now for the Bears to make their March push.

Here is a link to the score sheet.  Should the Bears have been given more power play chances?  Yep.  One, anyway – a blatant hook that David Kolomatis took while leading a neutral-zone rush in the second period – but you can’t turn back time.

Up next are the Charlotte Checkers, who were embarrassed by the Bears in their home rink back in November in a pair of games.  Time to BEAR down.

Preview of this game is forthcoming.

Seeking Five Straight at the Midpoint 1/18

Good morning Bears Nation!

After a 2:00 AM arrival from Syracuse, it goes without saying that today will feature an optional morning skate as the team prepares to face the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

It also goes without saying that – for the Bears to move closer to the middle of the East Division and the Eastern Conference – that the team must win tonight’s contest.  Last night, with the Crunch winning 3-2, the Bears officially slipped back into the division cellar – even in points with the Crunch, but officially in fifth because Syracuse now has the advantage in the head-to-head series with the same number of victories (17) in the same number of games played (37).

This is also a must-win considering where Bridgeport is in the standings.  The team is seven games below .500, following a 6-2 thrashing at the hands of the Binghamton Senators last night.  The Sound Tigers are 14-21-1-4 overall.

But, they are 1-0-0-1 – and have three out of a possible four points – against the Bears.

Should the Bears win, you can chalk up five straight at GIANT Center – which lengthens the current season-best for the good guys.

Check out tonight’s game preview and information right here, as there are plenty of storylines setting up for tonight.  Brandon Segal is on a hot streak for the Bears, but no streak compares to that of Sound Tigers rookie center Ryan Strome.  His six-game assist streak and ten-game point streak both are the longest active streaks in the league.  And, he has just returned from NHL duty with the New York Islanders.  And (again), he tallied four points in the Sound Tigers’ 4-2 win over the Bears back in December.

Happy Halfway-Point-of-the-Season to all.

Deschamps Joins Elite Company; Sharks Rematch 12/22

Hershey Bears Hockey

Nicolas Deschamps looks for a scoring chance against the Syracuse Crunch on Wednesday. Photo courtesy JustSports Photography.

Good morning all,

Something struck me while I was compiling all the Bears’ stats from last night’s 3-2 loss to the Worcester Sharks.  I usually go over all the stats immediately after a game, to ensure that everything gets to the visitors in a timely manner.  But since Worcester isn’t even coming to the rink for a morning skate today (neither is my colleague Eric Lindquist, the voice of the Sharks), I thought I would come in this morning and take my time perusing some numbers.

I found out something pretty hard to believe.

And no, it’s not that Nicolas Deschamps is on fire right now.  Everyone knows this kid has it in him.  He didn’t play enough last season to really shine.  He is now.  But the numbers that Deschamps has put up in his last few games put him in elite company.

With his one goal + one assist effort in last night’s contest, Deschamps has strung together points in four consecutive games.  In the streak, he has nime points (four goals, five assists).  He also is a cumulative plus-seven.  Working with Ryan Stoa and Brandon Segal will do that to your numbers.

But, the four-game streak is made up entirely of multiple-point games.  Can you guess who the last Bears player was, to string together four consecutive multiple-point games?

Jeff Taffe?  Nope.

Ryan Potulny?  Nope.

Jon DiSalvatore?  Nope.

Jacob Micflikier?  Nope.

Tomas Kundratek?  Nope.

Okay, you must have figured it out.  Keith Aucoin.


I couldn’t believe it either.  But then Chris Bourque came to mind.

We have a winner.

Not ONE Bears player put together four straight multiple-point games last season.  Bourque put up nearly identical numbers during his string, and it began just about two calendar years ago.  He posted nine points (four goals, five assists) in a span of games from December 28, 2011 through January 7, 2012.

So, congrats to Nic Deschamps.

He was one bright spot in a 3-2 setback against the Sharks that was, essentially, the Freddie Hamilton show.  Hamilton turned a power play goal-post ringer by Jeff Taffe into an unassisted wraparound tally at David Leggio’s end for a 1-0 lead.  He then helped set up Matt Tennyson’s power play goal for a 2-0 first-intermission advantage, and fished the puck out of a pile for a five-on-three tally in the third period.  Not a bad night for him.

Deschamps, meanwhile, assisted on Julien Brouillette’s five-on-three goal, and then converted a nice Matt Watkins transition steal in the final frame.  Really good game for all of these players.

Brouillette has ALWAYS been who I call the quietest, hardest-worker on this blue line corps.  He just gets things done.  A rare mistake?  He accounts for it – and often makes up for it.  Remember how he was boarded by Binghamton’s Matt Puempel after scoring two goals last Saturday?  He came back, finished the game and was named number one star.  He took a hard hit last night late in the second period and unfortunately did not return – he is due to be evaluated this morning.  Let’s hope all is well there, because this guy is a valuable asset.

Protecting against turnovers, playing tonight’s game like the team did in the first ten minutes of the first and third periods last night, and figuring out how to get the puck past a very large armada of Sharks players are all in the recipe for tonight’s 5:00 rematch.

Here is a link to the game preview and notes.  Labatt Blue pint glass for the first 3,000.

See you later on.

Shark Weekend 12/21

Good morning all!

I’m going to keep this post short to follow up yesterday’s writeup.

With Norfolk, Syracuse and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton all losing last night (Binghamton was the only team to win – over Syracuse – and snapped their 7-game skid in the process), take a look at the Eastern Conference standings:


Six points more, with a little help from those teams in the middle, and the Bears aren’t just out of the East Division cellar, but the club is right in the thick of the playoff picture heading into the end of calendar year 2013.

See what stringing some wins together could do?

Hershey does have its work cut out for them.  Worcester took just 19 shots on goal last night, against a typical smothering Penguins defense, but this time rookie Eric Hartzell was beaten on three of them.  Harri Sateri – whom the Bears solved on FOUR of 19 shots last March – put up the victory.  In fact, the only Penguins goal in last night’s 4-1 win was a Nick Drazenovic penalty shot tally in the third.

Sounds like the Sharks play some pretty good defense as well.  With Hershey the lone team in the division off last night, this contest is setting up to be a pretty good one.  Not to mention that Worcester is nipping at the Bears’ skate laces in the standings.

The Caps won 4-2 in Raleigh last night, and with Marcus Johansson not finishing the game, I wouldn’t expect a Casey Wellman return today.  The Bears stayed healthy after that marathon shootout win on Wednesday, and could get healthier, as defenseman Chay Genoway has been cleared for a possible return at some point this weekend.

Oh, and with that Caps win, Philipp Grubauer is now 4-0-1 in the NHL this season.  Great to see a super kid getting this chance.  But with three goalies on the Caps roster, and Grubi playing this well, the Bears crease is David Leggio’s right now.  64 games out of 76 for Rochester last season means that he won’t mind.

Check later this morning for tonight’s game preview.  And read Tim Leone’s writeup on tonight’s Joel Rechlicz bobblefist giveaway before you come.  Be one of the first 5,000 and you’ll have this collector’s item to take home.

See you tonight.  GO BEARS!!!!
