Bears fans celebrate Chris Bourque’s shorthanded goal (All photos by Kyle Mace)
Due to the holiday, tonight is the first ever “photo recap.” 11 photos from tonight’s game, recapping all of the events in the 3-2 SO win for Hershey. And like they say “A picture is worth 1,000 words” (so that means tonight’s post is 11,000 words.) From all of us here at Sweetest Hockey on Earth (and our big sister blog Russian Machine Never Breaks) we wish you a happy, healthy, and hockey filled 2012!
Norfolk gets on the board first, scoring the only goal of the first period
Chris Bourque scores a highlight-reel goal from his bum. Hershey ties it at 1-1
Christian Hanson pops a “shorty” of his own over Jaroslav Janus (say that ten times fast.) Hershey leads 2-1
The start of the Garrett Mitchell/Jean-Philippe Cote fight, in which Mitchell was the only one fighting
Mitchell channels his inner Andy Samberg and throws Cote on the ground
I guess helmets aren’t necessary when fighting Garrett Mitchell.
That doesn’t look good…
Norfolk ties it back up at 2-2
A Bear throws Mike Angelidis’ helmet into the stands. Bears fans did return it
Yes, I am Keith Aucoin. And, yes, I just scored the Bears game winning shootout goal.
The Bears celebrate their shootout win. Also that they do not have to wear those jerseys anymore.
