GAME PREVIEW presented by Rodriguez & Associates
Bakersfield is 2-1-1 on their current six-game road trip following a 1-0-1 weekend out of the division in Grand Rapids.
HOLLOWAY HEATS UP
2020 first round pick (14 overall) Dylan Holloway has four points in his last four games following his third multi-point (1g-1a) game of the season on Saturday. He now has 10 points (4g-6a) in 16 games this season.
MALONE PLAYS HIS 200th
Condors captain Brad Malone was recalled by the Oilers earlier in the week and played in his 200th NHL game last night as the Oilers shut out Philadelphia, 3-0.
Brendan Perlini and Philip Broberg were both reassigned to the Condors yesterday. Perlini had two goals in his previous short stint with the Condors while Broberg has 18 points (2g-16a) in 26 games with the Condors in his rookie season.
SKINNER FINALLY QUALIFIES
Stuart Skinner’s numbers finally qualify among the league leaders (based off minutes). He is fourth in goals-against average at 2.21, 7th in save percentage at .921, and has the fewest (1) regulation losses of the 41 qualified goaltenders in the AHL.
The Condors are currently sixth in the AHL in points percentage at .616%. Three of the top six teams in the AHL are from the Pacific Division.
Bakersfield is 6-2-1-1 in its last 10 on the road and is 10-7-3-3 overall away from Condorstown.
With 25 games left in the regular season, things are starting to take shape in the Pacific Division. With the top seed getting a first round bye (Stockton and Ontario currently tied for 1st), seeds 2-7 will play in a best-of-three first round series. Currently, the Condors occupy the third spot and are 11 points out of second with two games in hand on Ontario.
SCOUTING SAN JOSE
The Barracuda have been off since the Condors beat them, 6-3 last Wednesday. Their leading scorer, Scott Reedy scored his first NHL goal earlier in the week against Seattle.
