Bears Exact Revenge in Rematch

January 7, 2011

24 hours after the Phantoms terrific comeback in the Outdoor Classic, the Hershey Bears exacted their amount of revenge with a 5-2 victory at Giant Center to earn a split of the weekend series. It was Hershey's first win against Adirondack in three tries this season.

The game was tied 2-2 after two periods with both teams battling it out back and forth. But Hershey would score three goals in the opening 10 minutes of the final period to put the game away.

Andrew Rowe (2nd) and Tyler Brown (3rd) and scored in the first and second periods respectively for the Phantoms. Rowe's goal came from behind the net as he centered it out in front intending to hit Tom Sestito barging into the slot. But instead, the puck hit off the skate of a defenseman and into the cage.

With 3:30 remaining in regulation, a Tyler Brown collision with Hershey's Joel Rechlicz sparked a line-brawl at the Adirondack bench that involved Rechlicz throwing a punch at Tom Sestito who was standing at the bench. Sestito and Lauridsen among other reached and grabbed at Hershey players who got involved at the bench in the wild melee.

Keith Aucoin led the Bears offensive attack dishing out three assists to he teammates running his league-leading total to 50 in his pursuit of the AHL's all-time single season helper record of 89.

Hershey received goals from Chris Bourque on a shorthanded rush, Boyd Kane in the second period, and then three straight in the third from Jacob Micflicker, Julien Brouilette and Patrick McNeil.

The Phantoms outshot the Bears 30-29. Adirondack was 0-for-4 on the power play while Hershey went 1-for-5. Michael Leighton took the loss for the Phantoms while Dany Sabourin was the victorious goaltender for the Bears.

One more game in the season series between these long-time rivals remain. The Phantoms return to Hershey on March 14. With the win, the Bears take the lead in the all-time series after 173 total games with 83 wins to the Phantoms 82 (with 8 ties).
