Hershey Bears Claim 2010 Calder Cup, Defeat Stars 4-0

H0614_0237_medium
Tonight, the Texas Stars fell to the Hershey Bears in the 6th game of the Calder Cup Finals to give the Bears their 11th Calder Cup and back-to-back Cups.  The improbable run by the Stars was cut down by one of the most prolific and historic hockey teams in the history of the AHL.  The Bears struck early and often in this one.  Goals from John Carlson, Karl Alzner, and Patrick McNeill (2) put the Bears over the Stars by a mark of 4-0.

Coach Gulutzan's decision to start Brent Krahn over Matt Climie will surely be questioned by some.  Climie rode the pine tonight after suffering three staight losses despite often stellar performances, especially in Game 5.  Krahn, who had not played a game since suffering a concussion on May 9th against the Chicago Wolves, had 32 saves on 36 Bears shots.  Overall, the Stars played their game well but the Bears just had another gear.

As per usual, full recap is available on Hundred Degree Hockey.  I am going to take a few days to collect my thoughts and write up something to summarize the Texas Stars season.  You'll see something in this space when that does get published.  It has been a great year, and I look forward to writing over the summer and into next year.
