Center Peter Boyd provided a game-tying goal late in the third period Monday to help the Bakersfield Condors force overtime, but the Ontario Reign scored on a power play in the final minute of OT for a 3-2 victory.
ECHL scoring leader Colton Yellow Horn scored in a four-on-three situation, his 32nd goal of the season, from the slot with 44 seconds left in the extra session for the win.
The Reign (29-10-1-2, 61 points) broke a scoreless tie at 5:05 of the third period when forward Brodie Sheahan backhanded a loose rebound past goalie Scott Greenham.
The Condors (12-27-2-2, 28 points) pulled Greenham with 1:30 left in regulation in favor of an extra attacker, and the strategy paid off.
Forward Francis Verreault passed to the right point to Erik Burgdoerfer, whose wrist shot was tipped in by Boyd past Reign goaltender Jean-Francois Berube with just 88 seconds remaining in regulation.
Ontario outshot the Condors 16-4 in the third period.
Greenham stopped all 12 Reign shots in the scoreless second period.
The Condors outshot Ontario 7-4 in the first period.
