October 7, 2018 - American Hockey League (AHL) - San Jose Barracuda News Release

Bakersfield, CA - The San Jose Barracuda (2-0-0-0) used a 37-save AHL debut from Josef Korenar and five different goal scorers to cruise to a 5-1 win over the Bakersfield Condors (1-1-0-0) on Saturday night at Rabobank Arena.

After a scoreless first, the Barracuda broke the deadlock at 4:03 of the second when Jayden Halbgewachs (1) redirected a point-shot from Nick DeSimone through Dylan Wells five-hole. Max Letunov (2) added to San Jose's lead at 11:08 when he jammed in a point-blank rebound again through Wells' five-hole. San Jose completed the three-goal period when Alex True found Cavan Fitzgerald (1) uncovered at the left point and Fitzgerald ripped a shot top-shelf far side at 13:04.

In the third, Korenar stopped Cameron Hebig on a breakaway but Josh Currie (1) potted the rebound to inch Bakersfield within two, but DeSimone (1) would push San Jose back up by three on the power play at 9:51 and then Francis Perron (2) sealed the win at 5:21 as he swiped in his own pass that pinballed off a Condor' defender.
