The Bakersfield Condors look to use their home ice advantage to take a commanding lead over the Stockton Thunder, one night after taking a 3-2 victory in Game 1. Bakersfield was 6-4-1 against Stockton in the regular season and closed the season series with a 6-1-1 record over the final eight games.

The Condors overcame a 2-0 second period deficit with three unanswered goals in Game 1 Friday night, to draw first blood in the best-of-seven series. C Joel Broda notched the eventual game-winner, five minutes into the third. BakersVsSTK - redfield fell behind in the first after former Condor F Nicholas Tremblay lit the lamp, and the Thunder padded their lead early in the second. Second period tallies by F Ryan Watson and F Chase Schaber pulled the Condors level before the end of 40 minutes.

Bakersfield has come from behind to win three of the last four games… F Ryan Watson had two points (1g-1a) Friday night… LW Chris Collins has a point in four straight games (

1g-4a)… LW Andrew Carroll had his five-game point streak snapped Friday night… Friday’s Game 1 was the first of the playoffs for the Condors in which they failed to score the first goal… C Gary Steffes has an assist in three straight games… Eight different players have recorded multi-point games for the Condors in the playoffs… Only two d-men in the league have more playoff points than D Collin Bowman (2g-2a).
