On Friday night, the Charlotte Checkers overcame a 3-0 lead late in the second period to score five straight goals in a 5-3 win over the visiting Hershey Bears. Charlotte now has a 3-2 lead in the series as it shifts back to Hershey for games six Sunday and (if necessary) seven on Monday.
Drayson Bowman had an empty net goal and two assists. Oskar Osala had a goal and two assists. Nick Dodge had the game winner for the second game in a row. Brett Sutter had a goal and an assist. Zach Boychuk also had a goal and one assist.
It would have been easy for the team to give up. Down 3-0 late in the second, they could have folded up the tents and mailed it in for the rest of the game. But they didn’t. They stayed hungry, got a good break on a late goal in the second. Then they got a power play goal in the first minute of the third, and it was a new game. Instead of being down and out, they responded with a flurry of goals and put themselves into a good position. Two chances to finish off this series on the road.
