IN-GAME UPDATE: Bears 1 at Penguins 0 – End 1st

GREAT first period for the Bears… possibly their best of the season against a top team.  A 2-for-2 penalty kill, nice saves by Dan Ellis on WBS’ two power play chances and a beauty of a criss-cross zone entry between Scott Gomez and Nathan Walker all have combined to give the Bears a 1-0 lead after one.

Walker’s goal was his 12th of the season, and Gomez now has 23 points in 15 1/3 games.
