Brown Bears ready for weekend series at Fairbanks


The Kenai River Brown Bears spent four arduous seasons chasing the elite in the North American Hockey League West Division, finishing no better than fourth place each year.

Nearly 20 games into 2011-12, Kenai River’s fortunes have finally changed.

The Bears (13-4-1, 27 points) enter the final series of a nine-game road trip with the best record in the NAHL West, visiting the defending league champion Fairbanks Ice Dogs at 7:30 p.m. Friday and the same time Saturday.
