Holding onto playoff dreams: Hershey Bears

The Hershey Bears, coming off of a loss yesterday, take on the Providence Bruins tonight as they try to hold onto to their play-off slot. This is the first meeting between the two clubs for the 12-13 season. The Bruins have the edge over the Bears in this match-up as the Bears record is 21-26-5. With only a month left in the regular season for the Hershey Bears, they cannot afford many mistakes in their last 9 games, 7 of those games on the road. The Hershey Bears road record is 14-10-0-3 better than their home record 16-14-3-2. Coach Mark French’s approach to making it into play offs is taking it “game by game.” Recently the NHL has been recalling players, which has been forcing the team to rework their defense as they push toward playoffs. French said earlier this week, although there are many new faces and their systems difficult, the team has been adapting.  Puck drop tonight at 7pm at the Hershey Giant center, see you there.
