GAME PREVIEW presented by Rodriguez & Associates

The Condors wrap up an eight-game season series with San Jose in search of their fifth win over the Barracuda.


Bakersfield split in Colorado during the midweek, with both games decided by 2-1 scorelines. Wednesday night, Adam Erne gave the team a lead in the second period, but a third period Colorado goal was the difference.


Tonight's expected starter, Olivier Rodrigue, has stopped 86 of his last 89 shots (.966%) and is tied for fourth among AHL netminders with a .924 save percentage. The Condors have alternated goaltenders over their last 16 games.


Adam Erne has three points (2g-1a) in four games since being reassigned by Edmonton. The 28-year old has 98 points (44g-54a) in 170 career games over six AHL seasons.


Points-wise, Bakersfield sits a point out of fifth and five points out of third as they begin action tonight. The team has four games in hand on every team in the top-five.


At home, Bakersfield is 7-1-3 in its last 11 dating back to December 12. Against San Jose, the team is 16-3-1 in its last 2o on home ice and are 2-0-1 this season.


Ben Gleason and Raphael Lavoie each have four goals in six games against San Jose this season to lead the Condors. Greg McKegg has five assists in the season series as well.


The Condors are t-5th in goals against per game at 2.76 despite surrendering the second-most shots against per game in the league at over 32 a night.


Bakersfield is 22-4-2 when holding at least a share of the lead after 40 minutes of play. They have a +7 goal differential in the third period (43-36).


The Condors have points in 18 of 23 games and are 15-5-3 (.717) over that stretch.


Carl Berglund was recalled by the Condors earlier in the week. He has an assist in three games with the Condors this season. In 37 games with Fort Wayne (ECHL), he has amassed 30 points (9g-21a).


San Jose wraps up a three-game road trip tonight after splitting in San Diego and Coachella Valley. The Barracuda were shutout 4-0 on Thursday. They have won just four of 19 one-goal games this season, but are 5-4-1 in their last 10 games. Nathan Todd had a hat trick last time the Barracuda faced the Condors on Saturday.


The Condors are home Sunday at 5 p.m. against Colorado for Renaissance Fair Night.
