The Manitoba Moose (6-4-1-1) and Bakersfield Condors (5-4-1-0) met up for the second time in four nights on Saturday in Bakersfield. The Moose had the best early look when Jansen Harkins rang a shot off the crossbar in the opening minute. The Condors opened the scoring 11:17 into the first, courtesy of Ty Rattie, who waited out a Moose defender and Michael Hutchinson to find the back of the net. Manitoba went back on the offensive late in the frame with a power play, but despite some good looks, the Moose couldn’t pull even and went to the intermission down 1-0.
The second frame followed a similar script to the first. The Moose got a good look while shorthanded, but Peter Stoykewych’s shot hit the post. Manitoba’s penalty kill got some work in the frame, shutting down a pair of penalties, with a third carrying over into the final frame. The Moose did get back on even footing with the Condors with a late period goal. After Stoykewych freed up the puck, Mike Sgarbossa put a cross-ice pass to Cam Maclise who ripped a one-timer past Nick Ellis to tie the game with 4:17 left in the period. The closely contested game went to the third with the teams tied on the shot clock, 21-21, and on the scoreboard, 1-1.
Hutchinson did his part early in the period to help the Moose through the 1:19 of penalty time remaining from the second period. The Manitoba goaltender went post-to-post to take away a Condors scoring chance. The best Moose opportunity in the period came off the stick of Jack Roslovic on a sharp angle, but his offering was the third Moose shot to ring off the post on the evening. Despite plenty of chances, and 23 combined shots, the teams couldn’t decide a winner in regulation. Overtime only took 1:42 to sort things out. Nic Petan and Jack Roslovic broke up ice on a partial two-on-one, but Petan elected to drop to the trailer on the play, Cameron Schilling, who blasted the winner by Ellis to send the Moose to a 2-1 win.
