Bears Outscore Admirals in Game 1 of 2

Well, I told you yesterday that the Norfolk Admirals were built to score a lot of goals...and allow a lot of goals.  That theory held true tonight.  The Hershey Bears leave Norfolk with a 3-0-0-0 record having outscored the Admirals 7-5 tonight.

The Bears got a huge game from Chris Bourque, 2 goals and 3 assists, while the power play clicked in a big way going 3 for 6 with the man advantage.  Bourque had 2 of the 3 power play goals and Jacob Micflikier had the other (and Jacob assisted on both of Bourque's goals). 

Other Hershey scorers included a couple rookies as Cody Eakin got 2 and Brett Flemming scored his first professional goal.  Keith Aucoin added his 2nd of the year to complete the scoring for the Bears.

Dany Sabourin got the start and went the distance making 41 saves on 46 shots. 

The Admirals outshot the Bears by 13 (46 to 33) but they couldn't beat Dany enough to get a victory.

Now both teams will hit the road up to Hershey for a 7:00 faceoff tomorrow night for the first meaningful hockey in Hershey since last April. 

Beginning at 3:30 tomorrow the Hershey Bears will be kicking off the home slate with a "Party on the Plaza" featuring food, drinks, and live music.
