Jason Jaffray scored a hat trick in a 4-2 victory of the Manitoba Moose over the Hershey Bears at the MTS Centre Thursday. The victory lifted the Moose to 68 points, one more than the Calder Cup defenders Hamilton Bulldogs, who have two games in hand over the Moose. Also, the win puts the Moose seven points up on the fourth place North Division Syracuse Crunch. The Crunch did not play Thursday. They are trying to hold onto the fourth playoff spot in the North Division over four teams in the West Division that can take the spot if they have more points at the end of the season.
