Apparently Hershey took getting shutout 3-0 in Albany a little personally. Since that game on December 11 Hershey has won 1o straight. And most of the games haven't been close. Hershey has scored 47 goals to the opponents 19 during that span.
They have balanced out their winning as well. 7 of the wins are at home, 3 are on the road, against 7 different opponents, including 6 wins (against 5 different teams) within the East division.
The Bears have opened up a nice cushion in the East division as well...a 15 point cushion over second place Albany. They have also opened up a lead on the rest of the AHL. They have 5 points more than any other team in the league.
Not that any of that means anything this time of year but it is still nice to look at. Hershey's next 4 games are on the road including this Friday and Saturday in Winnipeg against the team they beat in the Calder Cup finals back in June, the Manitoba Moose.
