GAME PREVIEW presented by Rodriguez & Associates
The Condors open their final road weekend of the season in Henderson.
LAST TIME OUT
Calvin Pickard pitched a 27-save shutout as the Condors blanked Colorado 3-0 on Wednesday.
The Condors are 23-12-3 (.645) in their last 38 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.
Dylan Holloway has points in five straight (3g-2a) and six points in seven games this season.
PETEY DOUBLES DOWN
Alex Peters scored twice on Wednesday for his sixth and seventh goals of the season.
Jason Demers was recalled by the Edmonton Oilers yesterday. Should he play Saturday 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. Bakersfield still has an outside shot at home ice in the first round, but would need to win its final five and have Colorado or Abbotsford lose out.
ON THE OTHER SIDE
Henderson won in a shootout on Wednesday as goaltender Jordan Papirny stopped 42 of 46 in regulation and another three in the shootout.
The Condors wrap up the road portion of the regular season on Saturday in Coachella Valley.
