Coming off a 5-1 loss against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Friday night, the Hershey Bears looked to grab a win against the Utica Comets Saturday at Giant Center. Joey Cannata got the start for the Chocolate and White. Paul Carey scored at the 5:49 mark of the 1st period. After Utica would tie the game in the first, Chandler Stephenson would give the Bears the lead heading into the locker room with a 2-1 lead.
