BLOG: Bakersfield wins wild game four in OT
The Bakersfield Condors put themselves in a position to eliminate Utah in their ECHL best-of seven playoff series with a wild overtime win last night. The Edmonton Oilers ECHL affiliate tied the game with 0.8 seconds left on the clock in the third period to send the game to overtime, where Andrew Carroll’s shot from the corner propelled the Condors to a 3-2 victory.
Greg Miller scored on a rebound to give Bakersfield the 1-0 lead in the first period but two-straight goals by Utah put the game in doubt. With the goalie pulled for the extra attacker, Collin Bowman fired a wrist shot through traffic and in as time expired in the third period to send it to OT.
Oilers goalie prospect Laurent Brossoit made 26 saves in the win, including six in overtime.
The win gives the Condors the 3-1 series lead.
