In his second game back with the , Ryan Potulny's stick did some damage to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in Saturday night's 2-1 shootout victory at Giant Center.

So did his body.

In a telling moment in the second period, Potulny responded to a hit on teammate Tyson Strachan by WBS's Tom Kuhnhackl by tracking Kuhnhackl down and delivering a hit of his own at the red line in a team-lifting show of esprit de corps.

I love the character of the team and what's in that room, Bears head coach Mike Haviland said. I thought it was a major part.

It was great to see Potsy do that.

Potulny ultimately delivered the deciding shootout tally.

Last night was tough, said Potulny, returning to action after suffering a shoulder injury in a KHL exhibition game. Tonight I felt a little better. I'm getting my legs back, trying to get timing back and everything. This week will be good for me at practice, a full week here.

NOTEBOOK

Former Bears forward , who gave WBS a 1-0 lead, has scored two of his three goals this season against Hershey.

Hershey has gone 4-3 in shootouts.

Julien Brouillette (upper body) was sidelined for a fourth straight game.

David Kolomatis on Hershey ending a two-game losing streak: We sort of built a little bit before that [Christmas] break. To come back and put together that [two losses] was obviously a setback. But we battled back tonight. We're a positive group in there. Obviously, we're not getting the results we want every game. It's definitely a good group in there and we're picking each other up.

Haviland on his accountability as head coach: We win and lose together as a group. As an individual, you look at yourself. I hold myself accountable. I'm a big boy. I know what business I'm in here. I've got no problem. I do know one thing, though, is the system that I have, it works. I've won with it. I've won championships with it. I believe in it.
