GAME PREVIEW presented by Rodriguez & Associates
The Condors play their final road game of the season in Coachella Valley.
LAST TIME OUT
Despite a 3-0 lead, 12 minutes in, the Condors fell 4-3 in Henderson last night.
The Condors are 23-13-3 (.628) in their last 39 games, good for third in the division over that stretch.
With a 3-0 win on Wednesday, the Condors secured a 2023 Calder Cup Playoffs berth for a fourth consecutive time and are now guaranteed to start on the road in a Best-of-3 first round series.
Dylan Holloway scored twice last night and has points in six straight (4g-2a) and eight points in eight games this season.
Noah Philp assisted on two first period goals last night and now leads all Condors rookies in scoring with 33 points (16g-17a).
Jason Demers was recalled by the Edmonton Oilers Thursday. Should he play today in San Jose, it would be NHL game 700 against the team that drafted him.
The Condors have won seven straight at home and are 15-2-2 in their last 19 home games.
If the season ended right now, the Condors would face Abbotsford in a best-of-three first round series.
ON THE OTHER SIDE
Coachella Valley is four points out of first and a bye in the first round. Bakersfield is 2-2-1 against the Firebirds this season. Coachella Valley still has five games left on the year.
The Condors head home for three games to finish the regular season, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
