The Hershey Bears kickoff their week from the third largest city in Pennsylvania, Allentown, in their fifth of 12 meetings against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. These two teams met on Saturday at GIANT Center, in what appeared was going to be the “Anthony Stolarz Show.”
Two third period goals, including the final minute game-winner by Chris Bourque turned a 1-0 second intermission deficit into a 2-1 win. Hershey last played at the PPL Center on Black Friday, and dropped an entertaining game, 6-5 in a shootout.
In two games at the PPL Center this season, Nathan Walker has scored in each game. We also return to the scene where Tyler Lewington scored his first AHL goal. Dan Ellis and Stolarz is the goalie match up. Let’s see if the momentum from last weekend continues.
