Capitals prospect Riley Barber scored in his fourth-straight game and continued an impressive run in the Hershey Bears’ 5-2 loss to the Cleveland Monsters on Saturday.
Barber leads the Bears in scoring with 14 points and is second in goals with 7 in 15 games. All of his goals in the four-game streak have come on the power play. The Bears are 2-2 in the past 4 games, and they sit in sixth place in the AHL’s Atlantic Division.
Barber’s offensive growth this season can be seen in his goals the past four games. Similar to Alex Ovechkin, he starts on the Bears’ first power play unit and uses an impressive shot from the faceoff circles to rack up the goals.
