The longest rivalry in the AHL continues as the Bears open up their 75th season at home. The Amerks fell behind by 3 in the second period but made a huge comeback fueled by a 4 for 6 performance on the power play and some awful goaltending by Dany Sabourin (4 goals against, 3 saves in second period). Marcus Foligno had his best night so far as a professional with 2 goals and 2 assists. Cody Hodgson added 3 assists and T.J. Brennan had 2 goals and 1 assist. On the Hershey side, Garrett Stafford had 4 assists and Jeff Taffe had a goal and 3 assists.
Final Score: Amerks 8, Bears 7
Joe Finley & Matt MacKenzie vs Patrick Wellar & Garrett Mitchell
Nick Tarnasky vs Matt Clackson
