LAST TIME OUT
Xavier Bourgault scored his third goal in two games, but the Condors comeback fell short on Saturday, 4-3 in Ontario. Alex Peters and Michael Kesselring had the other tallies for Bakersfield who finished a five-game road trip at 2-3-0.
Bourgault extended his point streak to four games with his goal on Saturday. He has five points (3g-2a) over that stretch and is t-7th in goals by a rookie on the season
KESSELRING LEADS ALL BLUELINERS

Five of the Condors first six games have been decided by just a goal.
