The weather outside was frightful, but the Giant Center ice was delightful for the the Hershey Bears’ Braden Holtby. He recorded his fourth shutout of the season in a 2-0 win over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
A game after being shutout at home, an early goal by Garrett Mitchell only 3:56 in was just what the doctor ordered for Hershey. Mitchell easily sent a rebound into a wide-open net following a Ryan Potulny shot in the slot. Potulny’s chance was formed via a sloppy Penguins turnover in their own defensive end.
