Alumni Game: Bears Defeat Flyers 9-5 (Photos)
The AHL Outdoor Classic got started on Friday with the alumni game between the Hershey Bears and the Philadelphia Flyers. Rosters were filled with stars from both sides.
The Flyers had names such as Aaron Asham, Danny Breire, John LeClair, Mikael Denberg, Kimmo Timonen and the name who just had his number retired in Philadelphia just the night before, Eric Lindros.
The Hershey Bears roster had names that included Greg Amadio, Dean Arsene, Dennis Bonnie, Bryan Helmer, Boyd Kane, Mitch Lamoureux, Graham Mink, Mike McHuge, Frederick Cassivi and their ringer to the roster and NHL Hall of Fame defensemen, Raymond Bourque.
With an NHL team playing an AHL team, you would think this game would be one sided. The Hershey Bears said other wise as they went on to win the game 9-5.
Scoring for the Bears were Boyd Kane, Nick Kypereos, Rob Shearer, Graham Mink (2), Mike McHuge (2), Vinny Prospal and Dennis Bonvie.
Scoring for the Flyers were Todd Fedoruk, Jesse Boulerice (2), Jeff Chychrun and Riley Cote.
The game couldn’t be completed without a fight from Bonvie. The gloves were dropped with Cote of the Flyers in the final minutes to get the crowd rowdy one last night.
After the game, the jerseys worn in both first and second halves were auctioned off for charities of the Bears and Flyers choosing. You can find out more here: Bears vs Flyers Alumni Game Jersey Auction Results (Photos)
