NOTES

Pregame:

- Adin Hill leads the team out for warm-ups, he is making his eighth consecutive start; he brings a a 6-0-1 record with a 2.67 GAA and a .923 SV% into the night. He is 2-0-0-0 against the Condors this season, stopping 48 of a combined 49 shots faced.

- There are no changes to the lineup the team used Friday night.

- Forward Hunter Fejes and Defenseman Justin Hache are tonight's healthy scratches. Forward Christian Fischer is out (undisclosed).

- Roadrunners donning their white uniforms for the seventh straight game; Bakersfield wearing orange alternates again

First Period:

- Brandon Burlon called for a holding penalty five minutes in. Roadrunners successfully kill it off, allow only one shot.

- Roadrunners record four shots on their first power play of the evening. Chris Mueller fires a puck past Brossoit off the cross-bar.

- Taylor Beck, who was assigned to the Condors by the Edmonton Oilers early Saturday, nets both of Bakersfield's first period goals.

- The Roadrunners outshoot the Condors 11-9.

Second Period:

- Roadrunners outshooting Bakersfield 11-2 through the midway point of the second.

- Perlini, Mueller, Cunningham line SWARMING. No dice, though.

- Dakota Mermis takes a high-stick behind Adin Hill's net, looks to be drawing some blood - which should draw a double-minor.

- Roadrunners outshoot Bakersfield 17-3 in the second.

Third Period:

- The Roadrunners will begin the third with :19 seconds of power play time.

- Brendan Perlini opens up for a Chris Mueller feed, rockets home a one-timer to get the Roadrunners to within a goal with just over 11 minutes to play.

- Craig Cunningham one-times a Tyler Gaudet feed from the high slot, Chris Mueller redirects past Brossoit with 15 seconds remaining to tie the game.

Overtime:

- The Roadrunners enter overtime for the fourth occasion this season. They are 2-1-0 in the previous three accounts. 

- Craig Cunningham is turned away by a blocker save on a breakaway, Bakersfield transitions and Josh Currie beats Adin Hill high with 2:31 left in OT, securing a 3-2 Condors victory.
