Condors

The Condors will be back in action Wednesday night.

COURTESY TEXAS STARS

The Texas Stars tied the game late in regulation then scored early in overtime to beat the Condors 3-2 on Friday night in Cedar Park, Texas.

The Condors were looking for their first three-game winning streak of the season. They are 2-0-2-0 in their last four and remain at .500 (13-13-6-0).

The two teams play again today at 5:30 (800 AM).

Texas leads the AHL in overtime wins with eight, three of those coming against the Condors.

Iiro Pakarinen put the Condors up 2-1 with 13:02 gone in the third on a slap shop from the left circle on a power play. It was Pakarinen’s seventh goal in 13 games and team-leading fifth on the power play.

The Stars tied the game with 1:13 left in regulation when Curtis McKenzie redirected the puck past Eddie Pasquale with the goaltender pulled for an extra attacker. McKenzie then got the game-winner 50 seconds into overtime.

Pasquale stopped 32 shots.

The Condors struck first as Brad Malone scored with 13 seconds left in the first period for a 1-0 lead. Texas tied the game on a goal by Tommy Thompson 12:55 into the second.

In other news, it looks as of Oilers goaltender Laurent Brossoit could soon be headed back to the Condors where he played 21 games last season before his recall to the NHL.

The Oilers acquired veteran goaltender Al Montoya from Montreal in a trade late Thursday and he will join the Oilers in Dallas on Saturday. Brossoit traveled with the Oilers to Dallas on Friday. When Montoya is activated the Oilers will make a move with Brossoit, the most likely one being a reassignment to the Condors where he played 87 games over three seasons, dating back to his rookie campaign at the ECHL level in 2013-14.
