GAME PREVIEW presented by Rodriguez & Associates
The Condors look for an unbeaten in regulation week as they play host to the Texas Stars.
PACIFIC DIVISION AFTER DARK
It was a crazy finish last night as the Condors were awarded a go-ahead goal after regulation had ended, putting 2:32 back on the clock. Texas scored with the extra attacker and after a scoreless overtime, won the game, 4-3, in round four of the shootout.
EVERYONE LOVES THE DRAKE
Drake Caggiula scored his first as a Condor last night and added two assists. He has four points on the week and has five points (1g-4a) in seven games this season.
Lane Pederson scored his third of the year in regulation to give the Condors a 2-1 lead. For the second straight game, he scored in a must-score third round of the shootout to improve to 2/2 on the year in the skills competition.
ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR FIRST
Cameron Wright scored his first AHL goal a night ago to level the game at one apiece. The second-year pro now has three points (1g-2a) on the season.
OLLIE! OLLIE! OLLIE!
Despite making just his third start since Oct. 28, Olivier Rodrigue turned in a .934 save percentage, stopping 34 of 37 shots. On the year, he is 2-1-1 with a 2.20 goals-against average and a .936 save percentage.
THREE IS THE NUMBER
The Condors are 5-1-1 when scoring at least three goals this season.
KEPT THEM IN CHECK
Bakersfield’s penalty kill denied the league’s top power play twice last night. Olivier Rodrigue stopped a Logan Stankoven penalty shot as well.
ON THE OTHER SIDE
2021 2nd round pick Logan Stankoven leads all AHL rookies in scoring with 25 points (14g-11a) in 18 games. He scored his eighth goal in his last eight games last night. Linemate Maverik Bourque extended his point streak to eight games as well. The Stars average a league-best 4.00 goals per game.
The Condors are in Ontario Friday, but are home a week from tonight for Calvin Pickard Youth Jersey Giveaway. A capacity crowd is expected, click here for tickets.
