TONIGHT

The Bakersfield Condors conclude opening weekend with the first of 10 matchups against the San Jose Barracuda. Bakersfield is 15-14-4-1 against San Jose all-time and 9-6-1-1 at Rabobank Arena. Last season, the Condors went 4-4-2-0 against the Barracuda.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Bakersfield scored the opening eight goals of the game, including six in the second period alone, en route to a 8-1 opening night victory over Stockton last evening. C Brad Malone had four points (1g-3a) while RW Patrick Russell and RW Mitch Callahan each had multi-goal nights. G Al Montoya, returning to the AHL for the first time since 2011, stopped 21 shots to pick up the victory.

San Jose also opened the season with a home victory, 4-1 over the Ontario Reign. C Dylan Gambrell had a three-point night (2g-1a) and LW Francis Perron (1g-1a) had two points in his San Jose debut. Antoine Bibeau got the start between the pipes and stopped 30 shots to earn the win.

SPECIAL TEAMS SPOT ON LAST NIGHT

Bakersfield's special teams fired on all cylinders last night. On the power play, the team went 4-for-7 which matched the most power-play goals in a game for the team. Shorthanded, the Condors were just as deadly as C Brad Malone and RW Patrick Russell each had shorthanded goals and the Condors killed off three Heat power plays. Russell led the team last season with four shorthanded markers and Malone had three.

EIGHT IS ENOUGH

Bakersfield's eight goals were the most the team has ever scored in a season opener in 21 years and seven was the largest margin of victory for the team to begin a season. It was also the first time an AHL team had put up eight goals on opening night since Grand Rapids did it in 2013 at Rochester.
