Calgary Wranglers News Release


The Wranglers are on the road to face the Bakersfield Condors at Mechanics Bank Arena on Friday night.

Having clinched a playoff spot on Mar.30, the Wranglers are now looking to track down home-ice advantage in the opening round of the playoffs, with just six games remaining in the regular season.

Puck drop: 8:00pm MST.

WRANGLERS UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

DATE TIME (MST) OPPONENT VENUE

Apr.5, 2024 8:00pm @ Bakersfield Mechanics Bank Arena

Apr.6, 2024 8:00pm @ Bakersfield Mechanics Bank Arena

Head-2-Head:

Calgary currently sits in seventh in the Pacific Division with a record of 34-24-5-3 and 76 points, while Bakersfield also has 76 pts. and sits in sixth place with a 36-25-2-2 record.

Just three points separate the Wranglers, Condors and the top three seed (Tucson - 79 pts.) meaning home ice advantage is still possible for both teams heading into this weekend series.

Heading into their final meeting of the season - a two-game set this weekend - both teams have split the season series with three wins apiece (3-3) in six games so far.

Bakersfield won the previous meeting 3-2 back on March 20 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

ONE TIMERS:

(F) Adam Klapka leads the Wranglers in scoring with 43 points (20g,23a) in 60 games.
