    Stockton rallies from 2-goal deficit to beat Condors

    BY MIKE GRIFFITH The Bakersfield Californian
    Saturday, Oct 18 2014 10:20 PM

    Everything was going the Condors' way Saturday night at Rabobank Arena. They had a 3-1 lead and an opportunity to make it 4-1 on a power play midway through the second peirod.

    But the Condors were a tad too aggressive, mistakes were made and the result was a short-handed breakaway goal for the Thunder and a lead cut to 3-2.

    The Thunder ended up scoring two more goals, the winner coming on a power-play by Jack MacLellan with 6 minutes left, for a 4-3 win before 4,810.

    "We had three great chances right there on the power play and the puck turnover and it ends up in our net," Houle said.

    "It happens sometimes when you put (on) pressure. Those are little things we have to fix. "It's a tough loss. I thought we battled hard. We got 42...
