GAME PREVIEW presented by Rodriguez & Associates
Brendan Perlini scored twice and had three points to help the Condors score three in the final three minutes of the second en route to a 7-3 win.
P-C-M AT YOUR SERVICE
The line of Perlini-Cracknell-Marody came through again for Bakersfield last night. Each extended point streaks to five games. Combined, they have totaled 11 goals and 15 assists for 26 points over their last five games.
AND THE EXTRA POINT IS GOOD
Bakersfield’s seven-goal outburst last night was the most they have scored in a game this season. The team is now 9-1 in games decided by four or more goals this season.
20 for 20
Cooper Marody’s goal last night gave him back-to-back 20 goal seasons. He led the AHL in goals with 21 a year ago. It is the fifth time the Condors have had at least two 20-goal scorers and the first since 2018-19. The team record for 20-goal scorers in a season is three, done in 2016-17.
GRIFF DOUBLES DOWN
Seth Griffith scored twice and sits at 22 goals with 14 games remaining in the regular season. He’s seven off the team record of 29 set by Joe Gambardella in 2018-19.
