Bears dress down Penguins 4-1

 

By Joe Shetrom, 7641 Sports

Thanks to a 3-goal outburst in the 1st period - including a Dave Steckel short-handed marker just over a minute into the contest - the Hershey Bears skated away with a 4-1 win over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins before 7,653 Sunday evening at Giant Center. Steckel (2 goals, 1 assist), Jeff Schultz (1G, 1A) and Chris Bourque (PPG, A) potted the other scores as Hershey (28-8-3-5, 64 points) snapped a 3-game losing streak to the Penguins while stretching their lead to 3 points on WBS. Daren Machesney (3-3-1), getting the nod in goal with Maxime Daigneault on the shelf, earned the victory with 18 saves on 19 shots. Kyle Brodziak's man-down strike at 3:10 of the 2nd stood as the Penguins' only goal, with goaltender Jeff Deslauriers (13-8-2) suffering the defeat for Wilkes-Barre (28-9-2-3, 61 points).

Dubielewicz turns aside 51 in Sound Tigers' 4-3 SO win over Bears

 

By Joe Shetrom, 7641 Sports

joe@7641.com

 

Behind superb goaltending from Wade Dubielewicz, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers rallied from a 2-goal deficit to drop the Hershey Bears 4-3 in a shootout before 9,401 Saturday night at Giant Center. After Eric Fehr and a pair of Tomas Fleischmann goals gave Hershey a 3-1 lead at the 1st intermission, Bridgeport would get markers from Robert Nilsson (5-on-3 PPG at 10:08 of the 2nd) and Eric Boguniecki (ESG at 13:37 of the 3rd), completing the comeback and forcing extra frames. Following a scoreless overtime, the two clubs traded scores in the shootout, with the Sound Tigers (18-17-1-4, 41 points) emerging victors on breakaway markers from Peter Ferraro, Steve Regier and Allan Rourke. Fleischmann and Matt Hendricks found the back of the net for Hershey, but it was not enough as the Bears (27-8-3-5, 62 points) fell to 1-5 in shootouts this season. Dubielewicz (12-3-4) finished with a season-high 51 saves in regulation and overtime, and another 3 saves in the breakaway competition as Bridgeport improved to 4-1-0-0 against the Bears this season. Daren Machesney (2-3-1), subbing for the injured Maxime Daigneault at the onset of the 3rd stanza, suffered the loss with 20 saves in 25 minutes, and an additional 2 stops in the shootout.

Home Sweet Home

Bears make it 18 straight wins over Albany

 

By Joe Shetrom, 7641 Sports

After a five-game road swing that produced a 1-4 record, the Hershey Bears returned to familiar surroundings - and familiar results - downing the Albany River Rats for the 18th consecutive time with a 6-3 victory before 9,383 Sunday night at Giant Center. Quintin Laing paced the Bears offense with 2 goals and 2 assists, while Dave Steckel pocketed a pair of scores as Hershey (27-8-3-4, 61 points) moved into a tie with the Norfolk Admirals for 1st place in the East Division. Cody McLeod gave the visitors a 1-0 lead just 27 seconds into the contest, backhanding a rebound past Bears netminder Maxime Daigneault. Steckel (at 4:23) and Laing (at 5:11), though, would tally goals less than a minute apart, with Alexandre Giroux capping the opening frame with his team-leading 30th marker at 16:24 to give Hershey a 3-1 advantage. Mike Angelidis (power play at 8:28) and Ben Guite (short-handed at 13:44) would pull the visitors even during the 2nd stanza, but Dave Steckel's even strength goal at 15:12 stood as the game-winner. Eric Fehr (at 9:42) and Laing (empty-netter) provided 3rd period insurance scores, while Daigneault (12-3-0) finished with 21 saves. Tyler Weiman (12-7-1), pressed into duty at 16:24 of the 1st - after starter Justin Peters surrounded 3 goals on 5 shots - suffered the loss for Albany (18-19-2-1, 39 points) with 16 saves.

Bears finally solve shootout

Hershey defeats Binghamton 1-0

 

By Joe Shetrom, 7641 Sports

The Hershey Bears finally broke out of their 2007 funk, snapping a three-game slide with a 1-0 shootout victory over the Binghamton Senators before 4,393 Friday night at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena in New York's southern tier. After a scoreless 65 minutes of regulation and overtime, Kyle Wilson and Eric Fehr would find the back of the net during the breakaway competition, giving the Bears (26-7-3-4, 59 points) their first shootout win of the 2006/07 campaign, as well as their first victory of the new year. Goaltender Maxime Daigneault (13-3-0) turned aside all 30 shots faced through 65 minutes, then turned around and stopped all four attempts in the shootout for his second shutout of the season. Kelly Guard (7-11-3) was equally as impressive through regulation and overtime for Binghamton (11-22-1-4, 27 points), blanking Hershey on all 39 shots faced before a two-save effort in the shootout.

For the second time in three days, the Hershey Bears fell to the Norfolk Admirals on the road, dropping a 3-1 decision before 5,404 Friday night at The Scope. Troy Brouwer opened the scoring at 6:21 of the 1st period with a power play marker, giving the home club a 1-0 lead heading into the first intermission. Craig MacDonald would bag a pair of 2nd period man advantage strikes - at 10:20 and 16:39, respectively - to preserve the lead while Corey Crawford (21-8-1) stopped 25 of 26 shots to inch the Ads (25-8-4-1, 55 points) within two points of 1st place Hershey (25-6-3-4, 57 points) in the East Division standings. Joey Tenute registered the Bears' only tally of the game - extending his goal streak to six games-while netminder Daren Machesney (2-2-0) suffered the loss with 24 saves.
