Bears with the sweep. As a BST fan it would be nice just to win one game. David vs Goliath.

Playoffs are a whole new beast, but the two games during the regular season were…ugly.

Pelletier gave Hershey the game with a clear high stick goal to tie it with 1 min left.

No question, the Bears got a gift. Holtby played as badly as I've seen him this season, the Bears were 0-8 on power plays, and the Sound Tigers played a terrific road game that had the Bears fruustrated as hell most of the night.

That said, they've shown all their cards & have nothing to show for it. They were outshot 30-15 over the final 2 periods and overtime, and they were barely hanging on as it was. The Bears now know what to expect and will react accordingly in Game 2, and I don't expect Holtby or the power play to be bad twice in a row. I think we've seen what will be the only close game in this series.

If the AHL expects to be taken seriously, you need video replay.. especially with only 1 ref .. the ahl needs to come out and admit their mistakes with the game last night.. trying to cover it up by not even mentioning the high stick in the game recap skews bias... the ahl will earn respect if they come out and say " this was clearly not a good goal and a wrong call by the official, and we can not have games of this importance decided by a judgement call on the fly, this must be reviewed and rectified immediately by the league"

1 ref + no video replay gives the impression of games being fixed by an official very easily.. so how can this league be trusted when the wrong team was given a playoff game win off of an incorrect judgement call?

Where is the accountability?

Just another case of bigger crowd = more decisions from the referee - commonplace in the AHL.

And yes, at least for the playoffs they should run the two referee system.

Yeah, because bad calls almost never happen in Lowell, Worcester, or other low-attendance places.

I'm not sure they have enough competent refs for a 1-man system.

I don't know, I've seen so many bad refereeing decisions go the way of Hershey, WBS and the like it just don't feel like a coincidence...

As for two referees, hell could you imagine a game with two Koharskis? Oy... I do think an extra pair of eyes would really help though, there was so much off the puck crap going on yesterday.
