Another playoff game, another Hershey Bears’ thriller.
A night after Nathan Walker’s overtime goal gave the Bears a win, they pulled off another stunner, this time, overcoming a 4-2 third-period deficit to skate past Lehigh Valley, 5-4, Saturday.

With the win, Hershey takes a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
Game Three is slated for 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Giant Center.
Chris Bourque delivered the death blow to Lehigh Valley Saturday, finding the back of the net with 33 seconds to go, with the game-winner.
He also got the rally started, earlier in the period, by scoring on a deflection to cut it to 4-3.
Tyler Lewington then tied it at 4 with a shot that ricocheted off the post and in.
The teams went back-and-forth early.
Lehigh Valley got a power play goal from T.J. Brennan to take a 1-0 lead in the first.
Stanislav Galiev helped Hershey tie it at 1, but Andy Miele’s goal reclaimed the lead for the Phantoms.
Hershey’s Christian Djoos tied it at 2 in the second, but Greg Carey closed out the period with a pair of goals to give the Phantoms at 4-2 advantage.
Amazing comeback in Game 2 for @TheHersheyBears. Here’s how the @cbourque17 winner sounded. #LVatHERhttps://t.co/vKxoCRii0p
