Barracuda earn 4-1 win on Star Wars NightNov 25, 2016
San Jose, Calif. - Mantas Armalis stopped 31 Bakersfield shots to lead the San Jose Barracuda (6-5-0-2) to a 4-1 win over the Condors (6-8-0-0) on Friday night at SAP Center in front of a season-high 6,303 fans.
San Jose and Bakersfield each put nine shots on net in the first, but a perfectly placed high-slot wrister at 8:59 from David Musil (1) was the difference as Bakersfield skated out to a 1-0 opening period lead.
In the second, Colin Blackwell (1) whipped his first pro goal past Laurent Brossoit as he streaked down the right wing at 8:48.
The Barracuda took control in the third, Barclay Goodrow (7) began the scoring just a minute and 27 seconds into the frame after he had redirected a Julius Bergman shot from the point on the power play. Danny O'Regan (6) extended San Jose's lead with a brilliant move through the Bakersfield defense before beating Brossoit through the five-hole at 13:06. Timo Meier (4) sealed the victory with an empty-netter at 19:11.
Armalis (3-1-0-1) earned his first win in his third game against the Condors. Brossoit suffered the loss (6-3-0-0) by allowing three goals on 36 shots.
