BAKERSFIELD MARRIOTT POST-GAME AUTOGRAPH BOOTH: C Joe Gambardella and RW David Gust

TONIGHT

The Bakersfield Condors face-off against the Texas Stars for the fourth time in eight games since Dec. 23, 2017. Bakersfield rides a five-game point streak in the season series (2-0-3) into tonight's action and has a five-game point streak overall (3-0-2).

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Bakersfield scored four unanswered to secure seven of a possible eight points on a four-game road trip with a 4-2 victory in Texas. RW Ty Rattie scored his team-leading 12th goal and sixth power-play goal in the second to pull the Condors within one. Then, after C Brad Malone scored his second shorthanded goal of the season, C Joe Gambardella notched the game-winner midway through the third period. G Nick Ellis stopped 38 of 40 to pick up the win.

Texas has just one win in their last six games following Saturday's loss (1-3-2) and are 2-4-3 in their last nine games. LW Curtis McKenzie, who had two goals in Friday's victory over Bakersfield, scored his team-leading 18th goal of the season. G Landon Bow made his second straight start and suffered his first loss against Bakersfield in four appearances, stopping 27 of 30.

NO LEAD IS SAFE

In four of the previous five matchups with Texas, the Condors trailed in the third period, but secured at least a point. Twice (Nov. 2, Jan. 6) the Condors came back from two-goal deficits to secure two regulation wins.

The Condors have points in five straight (3-0-2), including securing seven of eight points on a four-game road trip. On the road, Bakersfield has just one regulation loss in their last 10 games (6-1-3, .750). After a three-game home stand, the team heads back on the road for another four-game road trip making it eight of 11 on the road during this stretch.
