The Bears come up two goals short
Medvescak lost to Karlovy Vary in their second preseason game. The game in the KV Arena ended in 3:2 (0:1, 3:1, 0:0).
The Bears started the game strong, and after ten minutes they scored their first goal. Martin St. Pierre scored on assists from Shaone Morrisonn and Brandon Segal in the 11th minute. After that goal the remainder of the first period was marked by penalties, three for Energie and three for Medvescak, but the score remained the same. 
The second period started with two penalties for the Bears, Mike Glumac in the 24th and Mark Flood in the 25th minute. The home team immediately used their advantage to tie the game in the 25th minute (Radek Duda), and then five minutes later they were up 2:1 thanks to Juris Stals. The Bears then quickly got back in the game. Just 59 seconds later, Brock Trotter reset the score to 2:2, but the period didn't end in a tie. Duda was given a penalty shot in the 36th minute and scored. The Bears had five two-minute penalties in the second period while Energie had none. 
Mark Dekanich was on Medvescak's net for the first two periods, then head coach Chuck Weber gave Mate Tomljenovic a shot for the final period. The twenty-one-year-old Croatian national team member went the entire period without letting a single puck past him. In the last period each team had a two-minute penalty. 
The Bears play their third preseason game in Prague on Tuesday (08.12) at 5PM against Sparta.
