Hershey Takes Another Road Loss In Springfield 4-1
Hershey headed to Springfield to take on the Thunderbirds for the first time at MassMutual Center and third time this season. Hershey was on a fifteen game streak in earning at least one point against Springfield while up North, but that streak was broken Sunday afternoon in a 4-1 loss.
In the first period, Sebastian Repo would but the birds on the board at 6:09 in the period, when a rebound from the crease snuck past Vitek Vanecek on a power play.
Back from intermission in the middle period, an extra-man advantage would put Springfield ahead by two, as Joel Lowry found the stick of Anthony Greco and he buried the puck at 4:45. Juuso Iknonen tallied is second goal of the season catching a pass from Jayson Megna and scoring on Thunderbirds goalie, Samuel Montembealut, at 5:25 making it 2-1.
Two more goal would be scored in the second period, the first Anthony Greco’s second of the night and fourteenth on the season at 12:53 to put the Birds ahead by 2. With the final goal of the game coming from Springfields’ Jake Horton at 18:22 in the second period, Hershey would head to intermission down 4-1.
The third period would playout scoreless for a final 4-1, as Hershey drops their season record to 11-15-0-2. Hershey outshot Springfield 29-26.
Hershey will be back at home on Friday December 21, 2018 at the Giant Center with a 7PM puck drop. It’s HersheyPark Pass night, and every guest in attendance will receive a free HersheyPark Pass for the 2019 summer season. Zach Fisch will be calling all the shots on The Bears Radio Network.
