Bears Seek Repeat
Perhaps someday we'll be talking about the Caps after Memorial Day, rather than their minor league affiliate. But until then, there's the Hershey Bears, who open defense of their Calder Cup tonight against Hamilton at Giant Center in Hershey, Pa.
From Mike Vogel of www.washingtoncaps.com:
No AHL team has ever won eight straight playoff series in the process of claiming two straight Calder Cup titles. The Hershey Bears are four wins - one playoff series - away from achieving that feat. On Friday night at Giant Center, the Bears will set about the business of claiming those last four victories.
The Hamilton Bulldogs are all that stand between the Bears and a rare title repeat. The last AHL club to claim consecutive championships was the 1990-91 Springfield Indians. Hershey has run up a dominant 12-2 record in the first three rounds of the 2007 playoffs, and the lone blemishes were both suffered in overtime.
Read the whole preview here.
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: If you've never seen a game in Hershey, you don't know what you're missing. Great atmosphere, great prices. And the whole town smells like chocolate.
