Last time the Hershey Bears took on the Wolf Pack the Bears were trounced with a 5-0 start. The Bears fought back however, finishing the game with two goals in a 5-2 defeat. That game was right after the trade that sent Chapie and Whitney to Hershey and Albert, and Labrie to the Wolf Pack. It was also the second game the Bears played without Olympian and All Star forward Chris Bourque.
The Bears will play yet this full three in three without Chris as he wont be back in Hershey until Monday.
The Bears however, have fought to a four game winning streak including a three game Canadian road trip sweep. The most impressive game was taking down the top team in the AHL the Toronto Marlies in Air Canada Centre.
Hershey will look to add to the winning streak this weekend and get themselves back in contention for the playoffs moving forward. The NHL trade deadline is this Monday February 26th, this could shake up the Bears roster in a good or bad way. We will talk playoffs after the deadlines have passed.
