The Bakersfield Condors host the Colorado Eagles for the first of a two-game weekend set, which will also wrap up the season series. Bakersfield has yet to topple the Eagles this season in five tries. In their last meeting on Feb. 2, the Condors overcame a 2-0 third period deficit to force extra time, but eventually fell in a shootout.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
The Condors came up with a clutch 4-2 victory on Sunday in San Francisco, salvaging a three-game weekend and earning a split in the City by the Bay. It was the 5th game in six days for Bakersfield, who went 2-3-0-0 during the stretch. D Kyle Haines had a goal and an assist for the Condors, scoring a memorable goal on a breakaway with the wrong-handed stick after breaking his own. F Jacob Lagace scored shorthanded, while RW Scott Freeman and F Nicholas Tremblay added tallies as well. G Brian Stewart was stellar in stopping 40 shots for the win.
F Jacob Lagace has a point in three straight games and eight of his last 10... D T.J. Fast was signed last Friday and was promptly thrown into the fire with a three-game weekend set. They were his first games played on the season... F Jake Morley has a point in three of five games since joining the team...

F Francis Verreault needs eight more points to crack the Top 5 rookie scoring list in Condors history.
