Success In NumbersFebruary 13, 2012 - American Hockey League (AHL) Hershey Bears
Mitchell's the Man:
Rookie RW Garrett Mitchell contributed in a big way this weekend, scoring his first game-winning goal on Friday at Syracuse and then adding another strike on Sunday against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Two of Mitchell's five goals have come against the Penguins.
Mitchell & Mates Meshing:
Mitchell's linemates Andrew Carroll and D.J. King have also cashed in, with all three combining for three goals, five assists and a plus-9 rating in their last four games together.
Top Offense Goes D:
The BEARS' top-ranked offense (3.60 goals/game) got help from defense and goaltending last weekend, allowing just four regulation goals over three games. The BEARS' Friday night victory at Syracuse was the team's first this season when scoring just two goals.
Holtby Moving Up:
Braden Holtby allowed just one goal in each of his weekend starts, pushing his goals-against average down to 2.55 (16th in AHL). He is now tied for fifth in the AHL with 18 wins.
