Vegas scored the only goal of the middle frame, with LW Adam Huxley blasting home his third of the season at 4:56. Bakersfield couldn’t cut into the lead in the period, despite an 11-6 shot lead.
Neither team lit the lamp in the third period, and G Joe Fallon made the lead stick. The Condors out-shot the Wranglers 25-14 over the final two periods, but the early damage had already been done, and Las Vegas held on for the win.
