Ball 453 Posted November 16, 2013 Share Posted November 16, 2013 Hold onto your hats people the Seattle Bears are 5-0 in their last 5 games. Did i mention that they have done this without their best player Sergey Brovalenko? Since trading their star center to the HC Davos Dynamo, the Bears have been on a tear. The Bears demolished their inter conference rivals, the New York Americans, 7-2, followed by a 4-0 beat down over the Riga Reign. Yes, we all know that the Americans and Reign are the two worst teams in the VHL in S35, but the Bears kept their up their winning ways in their next three, much tougher matchups. Seattle pulled out a 5-4 shootout victory against Vasteras, a 3-2 OT win behind Henrik Larsson's GWG against the Meute, and most recently upset the Helsinki Titans in a 2-1 shootout victory, once again winning off a Henrik Larsson goal. The Bears offense hasn't lost a step since moving Brovalenko, as Sebastian Ball Jr., James Lefevre, and Zack Sound have been playing like their lives depended on it. Ball Jr. has put up 9 points in the last five games, not including two shootout goals, and has really shined as of late. Both Sound and Lefevre have also put in work, recording 8 and 9 points respectively while playing stellar defense infront of rookie goaltender Steven Smyl, who looks more and more like a franchise goaltender with each passing game. "Everyone kind of expected us to lay down and tank after we traded away Brovy," said Sebastian Ball Jr. after the shootout thriller in Helsinki tonight. "But Toriyama has really stepped in and filled the void Sergey left. These guys in this locker room have heard all the criticism we have recieved and its nice to know that everyone isn't just looking forward to next season. We got alot of hockey left to play and alot of jaws to drop." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
