What a weird week. It almost feels as though the season wasn't supposed to start. Typically the Bears have at least 2 games a week once the season starts but this week they don't play again until Friday night. Which thankfully is only 2 days away but still.

Not much news out of Hershey this week...

Boyd Kane is back in Hershey after getting ice time in all 3 Capitals games so far this season. Tyler Sloan is actually expected to take Kane's place in the Caps lineup on Thursday as the fourth line forward.

After opening the season at home the Bears now have 5 of their next 6 games on the road. No real bad road trips in there as the furthest they travel over the next 3 weeks is to Glen Falls, NY to face the Phantoms.

A home game against Manchester is sandwiched in there this Sunday after 2 road games up 81 (Wilkes Barre and Bingo).

The other weird thing about the schedule is getting used to this no Wednesday games business. I know there will be some later in the season but not having any in the first month is kind of odd feeling. Last year it seems as though there were a bunch of games right away and this year it seems barren looking at the schedule.

Oh well....just waiting for Friday. Should have the usual previews and recaps up here all weekend.
