The Bulls cut into the Condors lead, 2-1 at 3:07 of the second period, when F Petr Sivak tucked a shot from the side of the net past Stewart. Bakersfield responded 57 seconds later as RW Scott Freeman banged home a rebound off a C Tyler Maxwell backhanded effort to make it 3-1. Stewart came under siege late in the period as the Condors surrendered five power plays, but the penalty kill came up big and kept the Bulls at bay. San Francisco held the shot advantage, 16-2.
CONDORS IN THE NATIONAL MEDIA

While she and her handler John The Birdman of Las Vegas are fine, the incident has created an international news buzz with the clip being featured on Yahoo!, CNN, NESN, Deadspin and shown on ESPN Sportscenter, Good Morning America and TSN.
