Playoff Hockey at Giant Center, Too: Bears Are in

 Last night at Giant Center the Hershey Bears fell behind 2-0 to the Philadelphia Phantoms. The game’s next 5 goals were all Hershey’s — two from the stick of rookie Andrew Gordon — as the Bears beat Philly for the second night in a row. In so doing, the Bears earned the East division’s fourth and final playoff spot.
The Hershey Bears, the Patriot News’ Tim Leone wrote last night, “certainly didn’t back into the Calder Cup playoffs tonight at Giant Center. They barged in swinging.”
The Bears will open the postseason this Wednesday night against Wilkes Barre-Scranton. The Phantoms had been lodged in first place in the East for much of the American League season but fell one point shy of the Penguins for the division title. Philly will face Albany in the East’s other semifinal.
Update: Take a gander at Chris Bourque’s work the past seven games: 8 goals, 7 assists, and a +8.
