A PLUS GUY

The Condors magic number to clinch a Calder Cup Playoffs berth is 20. That number decreases with points gained by the Condors or by the highest possible team outside the playoff picture failing to gain standings points. Tonight, two teams tied for fourth, Tucson and Colorado, face-off against one another. Bakersfield has 16 games left in the regular season.
The Condors are the only AHL team in the Top-5 in shots for and shots against… G Shane Starrett saw his individual 14-game winning streak end last night, but his goals-against average decreased and save percentage increased. He leads all AHL netminders with a 2.19 GAA… D Caleb Jones’ eight shots last night was a career high… D Keegan Lowe picked up his second fighting major of the season last night.
Last night, San Jose lost for the first time when scoring at least four games (18-1-0-0)… LW Jonathan Dahlen was acquired at the NHL Trade Deadline from Vancouver. The second-round pick (#42) in 2016 had 29 points (14g-15a) in 50 games with the Utica Comets… The Barracuda have the second best road record in the Pacific Division with a 13-9-1-3 record away from the Shark Tank.
