Despite five total goals, it was the goalies who shined in Friday night's opening round of the Calder Cup playoffs. In a battle of two Calder Cup playoff first-timers, the Condors got the last laugh as Bakersfield defeated Colorado 3-2.
“I’M DISAPPOINTED THAT WE DIDN’T PUSH BACK… WHEN THERE’S NO PUSHBACK, YOU DON’T HAVE NET PRESENCE, YOU DON’T HAVE FORECHECKS, YOU’RE NOT HITTING, YOU’RE GOING BACK AND YOU’RE DEFENDING LONGER THAN YOU SHOULD. I THINK IT’S ALL A RESULT BECAUSE WE WERE GETTING OUTWORKED BY THE END OF IT. OUTWORKED AND OUTCOMPETED, OUTBATTLED IN THE LAST 30 MINUTES AND THEY WERE ABLE TO WIN A GAME AND REALLY EMBARRASSED US IN THE PROCESS.”
