Consecutive hockey games on the weekend continue to haunt the Hershey Bears, and the losing ways continued on Saturday against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. A night after David Leggio back stopped his team to a 4-2 win, his teammates went an embarrassing 1-for-9 on the power play leading to a 4-2 loss.
Very rarely are teams handed the opportunity to bury the opposition in the opening 15 minute of the game, but against the Sound Tigers, the Chocolate and White were faced the opportunity. Lone referee Tim Mayer handed Bridgeport an astonishing six minor penalties in the game’s opening 12:53.
The Bears capitalized on their second power play chance of the night after David Kolomatis became the second Hershey defenseman to score in as many nights. He ripped on shot from the left face off circle which beat Kenny Reiter low to the ice while moving side-to-side.
