Tony Hrkac?! Jesus. Talk about old school.

yup, Hrkac was signed to an SPC before the CDR was submitted; Smolinksi is playing on a PTO; also, interesting because Hrkac last played for Milwaukee before and during the lockout and is a coach for a Div III team in Wisconsin

G7 tonight at Giant Center - Go Bears

sounds like Sloan is still with the Caps

while there have not been as many 1 goal games and only 1 OT, it is crazy how similar the NHL and AHL series have been

Note, the Bears and baby Pens have each scored 17 goals in the series through 6 games.

Leone thinks the same Bears line-up tonight...

browsed the thread, didnt see much mention of Carlson so i'll just ask: how has he looked at the AHL level (playoffs no less)?

my favorite prospect, really hoping he continues to leap into higher leagues and play well.

not on tv anywhere, but you can watch on your computer; Hershey does not televise Bears games and I don't believe WBS is televising this game anywhere either.

Video online: www.ahllive.com; three options:a per game charge, a series charge or an all playoff game option; I believe the 1 game price is $8, which is pretty crazy, but that is what it is

Radio online: Listen John Walton's broadcast via www.sportsjuice.com

I've posted a few comments about him, including the couple of games I saw in person if you scan back at a few of my posts. And poster DefenseDotCom, commented after his first and second games, IIRC.

The kid is ridiculous… I doubt we'll be seeing him again in Hershey next year.

Anyone else going? I'll be the idiot in the green Lepisto jersey!

someone posted this in Walton's blog comments...given the comments on this game and goal in today's coverage of G7, I thought it was worth posting here...such a fun game to be at that night

Walton's call of the GWG with video - Portland vs Hershey May 30, 2006 GWG

Brooks Laich cutting to the middle...

I remember listening to that game on my computer. Funny how far some of those guys have come.

lol, Puckhead makes an appearance

Funny, I had no intention of posting during the game tonight and then Aucoin scores a goal 50 seconds into the game...and here's a post...Let's Go Bears! Bears on the PK to end the 1st and start the 2nd. In the 2nd, a nice hit by Patrick McNeill on Lovejoy. After the 2nd goal, Pinizzotto with a shift with a couple of big hits and then breaks his stick when Joudrey sets him up with a nice pass.

1. HER Aucoin, (2) (Giroux, Mink), 0:50

2. HER Bourque, (2) (Aucoin, Giroux), 4:54 (PP) (originally credited to Giroux, changed to Bourque with the tip)

His 3rd of the playoffs (also, makes up for the broken stick on that earlier play.) Nice play by Reid for a third straight game, too. No surprise that they are going after Pinizzotto; hopefully, he is ok.

...Bears on the PP killing off time; PP over; still up 3-0...Go Bears!

Pinizzotto back on the ice; 1 minute to go with a 3-0 lead and Neuvirth attempts a shot on goal, a Pen stops it in the neutral zone

Wooo!

Bears win 3-0

Neuvirth with his 3rd shutout of the playoffs; second in a row; and second to close a series

Next up Providence or Worcester in the conference finals

First 2 games announced since Hershey has home ice:
Sat, May 16, 7pm and Sun, May 17, 5pm

Here's hoping we'll see another tandem battle next round:

Boston/Washington
Providence/Hershey

Whoever it is it'll start Saturday & Sunday at Giant Center.
