The Condors are back in Bakersfield after a 3-2 victory over Alaska on Saturday and the team is ready to to play its next three games Friday through Sunday at the Rabobank Arena.

Both teams are finalists in the ECHL Western Conference Finals.

Although the Condors had a good time in Alaska, the Condors' Ryan Holt said they were all glad to be home.

"We would like to win our three games here this weekend," Holt said Monday on "First Look with Scott Cox."

The first of three games kicks of at 7 p.m. Friday and Holt said there are a lot of fun promotions for the entire family to enjoy.

When asked what made the team turn around their slow start of the season, Holt said it was in the chemistry of the team.

"You have 23 guys that truly believe in one another and they overcame those teams that were hot," he said.

At Friday's game, there will be a conference finals rally towel giveaway. Holt encouraged fans to wear white for a white-out. Margaritas are only $5, he added.

"We are hoping for a big crowd and the team needs all the support they can get," Holt said.
