Casey Wellman scored for Hershey and Justin Florek scored for Providence as the two teams are tied 1-1 after 20 minutes of play in the decisive game 5 in the first round of the AHL Calder Cup Playoffs.

Providence, RI - After one period in the decisive fifth game of the first round of the AHL's Calder Cup Playoffs, the Hershey Bears and Providence Bruins are knotted at one goal apiece.

Casey Wellman staked the eighth seed out to an early 1-0 lead when he scored off a transition play just 1:19 into the first period. Dane Byers fed Wellman as the Bears were streaking up ice after the Bruins were caught deep in their own zone. Defenseman Chay Genoway, playing in place of Dmitry Orlov, recorded the secondary assist.

Hershey, pinning the Bruins in their own zone, dominated the first five minutes. It looked as if the Bruins were sluggish until their energy line evened the score at the 5:04 mark. Bobby Robbins and Justin Florek brought the puck up ice before Florek took a shot from the left half wall that deflected off a Bears defenseman into the back of the net.

Notes: One of Hershey's top defenseman, Dmitry Orlov, was a late scratch due to an illness. Chay Genoway took his spot in the lineup and took both Hershey penalties in the period... The Bruins were 0-for-2 on the PP while Hershey was 0-for-1.
