Move Over Ovie: Chris Bourque Pots 4 for Hershey Saturday Night

“During his rookie season, Chris Bourque suffered a concussion on a hit by Hamilton Bulldog Johnathan Aitken at Copps Coliseum on Oct. 30, 2005 . . . It was Bourque’s turn to deliver the headache Saturday night,” Tim Leone wrote in the Patriot News this morning.
Bourque scored 4 goals in Hershey’s 5-2 win over Hamilton at Giant Center last night. He became the first Bear to score four in a game since Len Barrie in October 1992. He now has 24 goals on the season.
The fourth-place Bears now hold a 4-point lead over Binghamton for the final playoff spot in the East division. Both teams have seven games remaining. The Bears are back at it today against Manchester in a 5:00 start at Giant Center.

    I was at the Minnesota game at the Phone Booth when Bourque was called up a few weeks ago. He played great and was very physical. I don’t think his size is an issue. He is short but he is very thick like his dad. He’s a bigger physical presence than Brian Gionta and Martin St. Louis, both mighty mites who are great NHL players.

    Chris’s problem isn’t his size. He throws his weight around regularly and is a good physical player. His problem is, like most young players, consistency. He doesn’t always bring his A game and his B game probably isn’t good enough to make the NHL.
