The Bears wanted a good start, and got it. Superb goaltending by Justin Peters, which included a beautiful glove save on a Tom Kostopoulos deflection attempt from the slot; great defensive coverage on two penalty kills; and an awesome, one-handed play by Jakub Vrana to create a two-on-one rush with Ryan Bourque, who drilled a shot past Casey DeSmith for his first Hershey goal.
The team looks like they are playing smart, poised hockey. Two more periods like this would be awesome.
Also, a special nod to Dustin Gazley. He has pick-pocketed Penguins players three different times so far.
Second period on deck!
