And then it disappeared. Gone. No trace of it.
So, instead you get this...
The Bears have their second 3 in 3 in as many weekends beginning tonight in Hartford against the Whale. The Bears then return home for dates against Wilkes-Barre and Norfolk.
In fact this is just the beginning for the Bears. Before the calendar turns to 2012 the Bears will play 10 more games. 8 are against teams currently ahead of them or tied with them in the standings. Tonight's game, 3 against Wilkes-Barre, and 4 against Norfolk.
In addition to that the 2 "easier" games are against Bridgeport and Syracuse. 2 teams that have beat the Bears within the past month.
7 of the games are on home ice. Which, one would think, should be a good thing. Except the Bears are only 5-3-2-1 at home this season. Total up the losses and that is below .500 (5-6).
Last weekend was a good start for the Bears. They picked up 3 wins and are now in the midst of only their 2nd 3 game winning streak of the season. The last one? The first 3 games of the season.
This will be a telling 3 week stretch for the Bears.
LET'S GO BEARS!!!
