The Bakersfield Condors dropped Game 3 of their best-of-seven Western Conference Semifinal series against the Stockton Thunder on Wednesday night by a score of 6-2.
The Condors actually opened the scoring in this one on a late first-period goal by Joel Broda.
Stockton replied with a pair of tallies in the second to take a 2-1 lead. Two early goals in the third made it 4-1.
It was 5-1 before the Condors would find the twine again, a Chase Schaber goal just past the 15-minute mark. The Thunder would add an empty netter to make it a 6-2 final.
Oilers prospect Laurent Brossoit faced 22 shots, making 17 saves. Despite allowing five goals, Brossoit still has a 1.69 goals-against average and .937 save percentage through eight games in these playoffs.
The next two games are also in Stockton this Friday and Saturday. If necessary, Games 6 and 7 will be back in Bakersfield on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
