The month of January, with 13 games in three states and six different cities may appear to be a marathon, but heading into Friday night’s home game against Stockton, Condors coach Jay Woodcroft said it’s time for the stretch run.

Bakersfield Condors rookie goaltender Dylan Wells stopped 27 shots as the Condors shut out the Stockton Heat, 1-0, on the road.

A turnover at their own blueline late in the second period was glaring, and costly, but there was far more wrong with Bakersfield’s game against Colorado on Tuesday night.

The Condors juggled their lines and made a goaltender change but came up empty on Friday night in San Diego in a 4-1 loss against the Gulls. The Condors, who had won four straight entering the game, avoided a shutout when defenseman Ryan Stanton scored his first of the season with 4:15 remaining.

He was playing on the top line for the Condors and on Thursday morning, right wing Patrick Russell was recalled to the Edmonton Oilers.
