The Bakersfield Condors host the Colorado Eagles for the first time all season. The two clubs have met only three times previously this season, with a series in Colorado back in December, a sweep by the Eagles (two of which came by just one goal). Bakersfield hosts Colorado four times in the next 15 days, and that will signal the end of the seven-game season series.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
The Condors staked themselves to a 2-0 lead in Las Vegas through 20 minutes on Wednesday night, only to have the Wranglers rally with four unanswered tallies – three in the third period alone – including an empty netter en route to a 4-2 win. The loss came off the heels of an emotional comeback win by Bakersfield last Sunday in Kalamazoo, in which they were the team coming from a 2-0 deficit to win.
The Condors finally return to home ice tonight for the first time since Jan. 15. Since then they have played seven road games in six different cities, traveling through four time zones and covering over 7,000 miles of travel. They marched through six different airports and set foot in nine different states. They went 2-4-1-0 on the trip. They will play 15 of their last 25 games, and eight of their next 12, on home ice.
