The Condors get right back to work after the holidays, hosting a Boxing Day matchup against the Las Vegas Wranglers. The two teams are tied for 4th in the Pacific Division and 7th in the Western Conference.

The Condors won the lone meeting in Bakersfield this season, a 2-1 win on Nov. 9.

The Condors took the rubber match on Sunday against the Steelheads, 4-3, with C Joel Broda notching the deciding goal early in the third period. It was the Condors sixth win in nine games as the team has moved up two spots in the Western Conference standings.
