IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
The Condors raced out to a 2-0 lead last night, just 1:28 into the game, as D Scott Enders and C Levi Nelson each potted goals. However, Western Conference leading Idaho would storm back in the final 40 minutes, scoring five unanswered goals en route to a 5-2 victory. G Scott Greenham got the start for Bakersfield and took the loss making 34 saves on 39 shots.
SHORTHANDED BLUE LINE
After starting last night’s game with just five defensemen, the already shorthanded Condors blue line got even shorter when D Ryan Annesley left the game two minutes into the period and did not return. F Liam Huculak filled in for the rest of the night on the back end, as with penalties, the Condors at points were down to three available natural defensemen. D Trevor Hendrikx and D Olivier Dame-Malka were already out of the lineup with injuries.
C Levi Nelson has goals in each of his last three games (3g-1a)… D Scott Enders scored his first professional goal last night… F Brett Lyon dropped the mitts twice for his first fighting majors with the Condors. In two games with the team he has two assists and two fights… F Tyler Brenner was held off the scoresheet against Idaho for the first time in four games last night. He had five points (2g-3a) against the Steelheads coming into last night… The Condors begin a four-game road trip tomorrow night, playing the Midnight Game in Las Vegas.
12/8 F Brett Lyon signed off waivers from Orlando
