The Condors look for a split in Tucson against the Roadrunners. Tucson has won four straight in the season series, including a 6-2 win last night
LAST TIME OUT
Bakersfield fell behind 3-0 in the first, cut it to 3-2, but Tucson put it away in the third in a 6-2 win last night. J-S Dea had three points (1g-2a ) for the Roadrunners.
Markus Niemelainen played his first AHL game since December 11 and scored twice. It was his first career multi-goal game.
TULLIO KEEPS IT GOING
Ty Tullio has four points (2g-2a) in his last four games after he assisted on Niemelainen’s second goal last night.
LAVOIE ADDS ON
Raphael Lavoie’s second period assist gave him 11 points (5g-6a) in his last 12 games.
