The Bears are one victory away, from a sweep in their playoff series against the number one seed Providence.  The offense has been outstanding for Hershey, scoring 10 goals in their first two wins.

Garrett Mitchell, Bears Forward

“Most of our goals come from in tight on the net.  Guys are bearing down on their chances and putting it into the back of the net.  I don’t think there is any rhyme or reason to the high scoring series but at the same time we are doing our job.”

The chocolate and white have all the momentum in this match-up.  They’re hoping not lose it with a 6 day layoff between games.

Boyd Kane, Bears Captain

“Feels like we have the momentum right now but its a long week sitting here waiting but when you get rest in the playoffs its never a bad thing because some times when you get going you don’t get that chance.”

John DiSalvatore, Bears Forward

“We smell blood and I think its important for us to seize the opportunity.  You haven’t won anything yet and this isn’t something you can take for granted.”

The Bears go for the sweep Saturday night for the sweep Saturday night.  They drop the puck at 7 at Giant Center.
