BAKERSFIELD MARRIOTT POST-GAME AUTOGRAPH BOOTH: LW Tyler Benson and G Dylan Wells
The Bakersfield Condors step out of the Pacific Division for the first of two straight against the Iowa Wild. It is the third meeting overall between the two teams as the Condors could only gather a point when the teams met in November in Des Moines. The Condors went 3-1-0 against Iowa a season ago.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Bakersfield went 3-1-0 on a four-game road trip to start 2020 after a 5-3 win last night in Ontario. The Condors power play went a perfect 3/3 and the team's penalty kill went 4/4 and scored shorthanded. Five players had multi-point games and G Stuart Skinner stopped 40 as the Condors have earned points in six of seven games (5-1-1).

On the season, he has eight goals and 23 assists for 31 points in 34 games.

G Stuart Skinner returned from the ECHL and has made seven consecutive starts for the Condors. Over that stretch he is 5-1-1 overall with a 2.97 GAA and a .916 save percentage. His 40 saves last night was his most since a 42-save performance at Ontario on Nov. 2.
