Last time the Bears were in action they completed a sweep of the Hartford Wolf Pack by rallying from a 1-0 deficit with four unanswered goals. Garret Roe redirected a shot then gave the Bears the lead for good. Matt Strome added a goal of his own and Mike Vecchione put the game away with an empty net goal.

The Richard F. Canning Trophy will be on the line once again for the Bears as they look to reclaim that trophy once again before hopefully adding a bigger one to the case soon, knock on wood.
