CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Colorado Eagles (23-16-1-4, 51pts) used a three-goal first period to cruise to a 6-3 win over the Bakersfield Condors (10-31-4-1, 25pts) in front of 4,338 at Rabobank Arena Friday night.
Bakersfield cut into the lead in the second frame when F Tyler Helfrich scored at 12:22 to make it 3-1. But the Eagles responded with two goals in the next five minutes to take a commanding 5-1 lead through 40 minutes.
Condors rookie D Tyson Gimblett notched his second goal of the season at 6:17, cutting the lead down to 5-2. Then LW Kyle Calder added a tally at 15:27 to make it 5-3, but an Eagles goal just 18 seconds later quelled the Condors hopes for a comeback.
