HERSHEY BEARS: FIGHT NIGHT (PHOTOS)

“Saturday night’s alright for fighting. Get a little action in.” – Elton John

With the Caps on the road, I decided to make the trip up to Hershey, PA to take in a Bears game. The Hershey Bears hosted the Adirondack Phantoms (Flyers affiliate) in front of almost 11,ooo fans. Saturday night was a re-match of Friday’s AHL Outdoor game at Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia where the Bears fell to the Phantoms in OT.

You know the old joke “I Went To A Fight and a Hockey Game Broke Out?” That saying pretty much sums up the mayhem at Giant Center on Saturday night (see list of penalties below with a total of 154 PIMs). The game was chippy from the start, maybe some residual emotion from the Outdoor Classic. Bears prevailed this time though, with a 5-2 win over Phantoms.

Here are a sample of photos. Will post additional ones later (hotel connection is slow).
