GAME PREVIEW presented by Rodriguez & Associates
The Bakersfield Condors are 6-3-0 in the month of November and play the finale of a six-game homestand.
LAST TIME OUT
The Condors stopped a three-game skid on Tuesday with a 3-2 victory over Henderson. Michael Kesselring (7th) and Xavier Bourgault (4th) scored 12 seconds apart in the third period to rally the home side. San Jose erupted late in the third period in a 5-2 win over the Knights yesterday.
Michael Kesselring is tied for the league lead for goals by a d-man with seven on the year. His 46 shots are 10 more than anyone else on the team. Brad Hunt’s 13 goals in 2015-16 still holds as the team record for goals by a blueliner in a season.
22 players have scored for the Condors this season through their opening 15 games.
NICE TO SEE YOU
San Jose is the eighth Pacific Division opponent the Condors have seen this season through their opening 16 games. Only Coachella Valley is left on the schedule from the Pacific with their first trip to Bakersfield on December 10.
Bakersfield is +11 in third period goal differential this season, scoring 23 times and only allowing 12.
Tonight begins a stretch of six games in 11 nights for the Condors.
ON THE OTHER SIDE
The Barracuda have the best penalty kill in the AHL at 89.0%, only allowing nine on 82 opportunities. Thomas Bodeleau leads the team with eight tallies on the year.
The Condors head north of the border for two games with Abbotsford on Tuesday and Wednesday. Both games start at 7 p.m.
