A former AHL powerhouse and multiple Calder Cup winner, the Hershey Bears are now just barely better than the struggling Hamilton Bulldogs with a record of 11-11-1-0. The bears are 6-4-0-0 in their last 10 games though, compared to the Bulldogs' 3-7-0-0.
The Bears are lead by AHL scoring veteran Jeff Taffe, while the Bulldogs only have two regulars about 0.5 points per game, in Brendan Gallagher and Aaron Palushaj. Leblanc is also over this mark, but he's only played 7 games.
