CONDORS: Bakersfield embrace elimination mindset ahead of Game 6

Condors face another 'win or go home' scenario in San Diego after Saturday's double-overtime triumph in Game 5

SAN DIEGO, CA - Game 7 mentality.

It came through in a big way for the Bakersfield Condors on Saturday in Game 5, with Josh Currie finding the twine in double overtime for his first goal of the AHL Calder Cup Playoff campaign to stretch this AHL Pacific Division Final to a Game 6 tonight in San Diego.

Facing another elimination game tonight in hostile territory, the Condors know what's at stake. Both sides have fought fangs and talons across 22 periods of hockey this series, including three overtime contests and two that have gone into multiple frames of sudden death.
