VsSTK - redThe Bakersfield Condors conclude their four-game homestand with a special matinee 10:30 a.m. game against the rival Stockton Thunder. It is the first meeting of 13 between the two sides and the first of eight games in Bakersfield.

The Condors hosted the Idaho Steelheads for three games in Bakersfield and went 1-2-0 on the weekend. In their lone victory, the Condors came from three goals down to win 4-3 in overtime. Jimmy Martin tallied twice, his first professional goals, including the overtime game-winner. Alain Goulet scored in the final minute of regulation.

Stockton played twice in Las Vegas over the weekend, going 1-0-1-0. The Thunder lost Saturday’s contest 4-3 in overtime, surrendering a late third period tally before bouncing back in a shootout win on Sunday, 3-2.

Michael Gergen is a natural forward. However, with injuries and movement along the Condors blue line this season, the Hastings, MN native has played more games as a defenseman this season (8) than as a forward (5).  Two of three goals this season have come as a defenseman.

Bakersfield and Stockton meet for the first time of the 13 meetings this season. The Central Valley rivalry will take on a new twist as Condors Head Coach Matt O’Dette faces the team he formerly captained and coached. Other Condors to have spent time in Stockton include G Bryan Pitton, LW Matt Marquardt, and RW Jesse Gimblett. Overall, the Condors record is strong against the Thunder, with a 34-18-3 mark. For games played in Bakersfield, the Condors are 17-9-1.
