With the Giant Center ice troubling the Hershey Bears Hockey Club, they looked for their tenth road win of the campaign in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Braden Holtby was named a healthy scratch, as Dany Sabourin backstopped the Bears to an exciting 4-3 overtime win over the Sound Tigers. Tomas Kundratek tallied two goals, including the overtime game winner to help tame the Tigers.
The Sound Tigers jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead following a Bears’ defensive break down. At the 3:39 mark, Johan Sundstrom capitalized on a 2-on-1 rush and greeted Sabourin with an early goal against.
With little Hershey offense in the first half of the period, the Bears suddenly turned the tide with two goals only 45 seconds apart. Ryan Stoa and Matt Clackson crashed the goal and jammed the puck into the net with 6:40 to go in the frame. Stoa received credit for the goal in only his third game back from injury, as Clackson picked up his second point of the season.
