Lander nets a hat trick as Condors stomp Stockton, 5-2

CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors (14-12-4-1, .532) froze the Stockton Heat (18-11-3-1, .606) in a stunning 5-2 win Friday night at Rabobank Arena. Anton Lander’s first goal of the night prompted a cascade of shirts, socks, and underwear onto the ice to support Let It Fly Friday. Lander picked up two more goals and an assist tonight, earning his second hat trick this season. Bakersfield hits the road for a season-long seven games before returning to Rabobank Arena in February.
