The Hershey Bears beat Coachella Valley 3-2 in Game 4 after big nights from Mike Vecchione and Ethene Frank

Hershey, Pennsylvania – After the horror show in Southern California, the Hershey Bears officially made it a series against the Coachella Valley Firebirds. And they were led by first line players who were mostly silent in the postseason.

Mike Vecion Scored twice while teammate Liney Ethan Frank He cracked in another to give the Bears a 3-2 victory.

The Calder Cup Finals series is now tied at two games apiece. Game four is on Saturday at the Giant Center. Hershey is two wins away from its twelfth Calder Cup.

Mike Vecchione started the scoring in the first period with a power play goal 4:27 into the period. Vecchione, in the protective spot, found a loose puck and pushed it past goaltender Joey Dacord to make it 1-0.

His roar: an epic.

The Bears held the Firebirds to just one shot through the first 10 minutes of the game, but just as they did in Game Three, Coachella Valley responded quickly. Austin Boganski caught a beautiful pass from Shane Wright, fourth overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft, to beat Hunter Shepherd on the far side to tie the game.

Mike Vecchione hit again early in the second inning to give Hershey the lead. Those two goals marked his first multi-goal game of the postseason and only his second multi-point performance.

Ethyn Frank followed that up with a beautiful goal that gave him goals in back-to-back matches. Literally no goalkeeper can stop this.

Frank had previously gone 11 straight games without scoring – the longest he’s had a scoring layoff of the year – before finally breaking through in the third game.

Tonight’s attendance was 10,687 – sell out.
