Quick recap of the Amerks win over the Bears..
First period started with both teams going back and forth for the first five minutes. Gongalsky had a few close chances early.
Dennis Persson on the power play created a great chance shooting from the face off dot trying to give Whitmore the chance to tip it in but Holtby got a glove on it. Amerks had some decent puck movement on the power play.
Bears scored first off what could be considered a fluke goal. The puck bounced in the air and David Leggio lost site of it and it bounced over him and in. Matt Pope was given credit.
Derek Whitmore tied the game 1-1 keeping his eye on a loose puck in front of the net and getting it in. Corey Tropp was to the side of the net battling for the puck and found a way to squeeze it to the front.
Nick Crawford blocked a shot in the Amerks zone and created a fast two on with Colin Stuart leading the play with Corey Tropp. Stuart sent the puck cross ice to Tropp who brought it across Holtby and buried it with a nice backhand.
