WATCH: Goalies Drop Gloves And Fight In Binghamton Black Bears Game
The Binghamton Black Bears are on a roll at home and if you haven't been to a game yet then you're missing out on a lot. The Black Bears had been on the road for three weeks before returning home on Saturday, February 19th.
It was worth the wait as the Bears dominated the Delaware Thunder, 9-3 in front of a sold-out crowd. The game included a goalie fight with 30 seconds to go in the game.
Then on Monday, February 21st, the Black Bears skate by the best team in the league, the Watertown Wolves by a 5-3 score. I think they've found a new President's Day tradition at the Visions Veterans Memorial Arena.
The Black Bears have won three in a row and five of their last six games at home and they'll attempt to keep it going this Friday night, February 25th. One of the things that they've stressed since the beginning is the importance of getting the youth in our community excited about hockey.
At the beginning of the year, they offered free season tickets to any youngster that played in the Southern Tier Hockey Association along with the Ice House Hawks and the Binghamton Blizzard. On Friday, they are doing it again.
Binghamton Black Bears American Special Hockey Association Night
This Friday, February 25th, the Black Bears try to win their fourth home game in a row on American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) Night. They will honor the ASHA and wear special warmup jerseys.
The warmup jerseys will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to the American Special Hockey Association. The Delaware Thunder is coming back to town (will there be goalie fight round 2) and I'll be doing Chuck-a-Puck between the 2nd and 3rd period.
Tip-off at 7:05 and Let's Go Black Bears!
