GAMEDAY: @ Hershey 12/28

@   

Who: Hershey Bears

Where: Giant Center

When: 7:00 p.m.

Last Game: Last night at home against Lehigh Valley, Anthony Angello had a hat trick, Jake Lucchini scored shorthanded and the Penguins beat the Phantoms 4-2. For Hershey, the Bears were in Utica last night and won 5-4 in overtime. Mike Sgarbossa’s goal in overtime capped off a four point night for the Bears forward. Sgarbossa also had three assists.

Last Meeting: December 8 in Hershey, the Penguins lost in overtime 3-2. Sam Miletic and Anthony Angello scored in the first period, the Bears scored two in the third to force overtime when Joe Snively scored to give the Bears the win.

Record: For WBS: 16-12-3-1 (36 pts., 4th place Atlantic Division) // For HER: 17-9-2-3 (39 pts., 3rd place Atlantic Division)

Referees: Reid Anderson / Michael Duco

Linesmen: Ryan Knapp / Jud Ritter

Why You Should Care: Hershey has won nine straight coming into tonight but it seems that they haven’t been easy wins of recent. The Penguins meanwhile, can’t seem to score any goals unless your name is Anthony Angello. That usually sets up a weird game from occurring tonight between these two rivals.

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is back for another season and better than ever.

Other Game to Watch: Providence visits Hartford in a battle of two of the top teams in the Atlantic Division.
