ONTARIO -- Laurent Brossoit tied an ECHL record with his eighth shutout of the season as the Condors beat the Ontario Reign 3-0 on Friday night at Citizens Bank Arena.
Brossoit stopped 30 shots, running his record to 23-9-2.
The win kept the Condors (32-29-2-4) in sixth place in the ECHL Western Conference, three points up on Stockton, which beat Utah on Friday night.
Gary Steffes continued to rack up goals against the Reign as he scored 13:17 into the second. It was his 18th of the season with eight of those coming in nine games against the Reign.
Steffes played an unwilling role in the next goal and he took a high stick to the face just before the midway point of the third period, leading to a double-minor power play.
Rookie defenseman Colin Joe, playing in just his third game, scored a power-play goal from low in the right circle off a feed by Matt Thurber to make it 2-0 at 10:14.
Steffes left the ice bleeding after taking the stick to his face and did not return.
Condors captain Joel Broda, playing for the first time in 18 games after an extensive stint in the AHL, scored an empty-netter with 44 seconds left.
Tempers boiled over with 26 seconds left when a couple of fights broke out.
Greg Miller, who was called up to Oklahoma City on March 19, has been reassigned to the Condors and could be in action tonight against Las Vegas.
The first 2,000 fans 5 and older at tonight's game receive a free bobblehead of Condors captain Joel Broda.
The Wranglers will be without the services of Adam Huxley who received a three-game suspension for delivering an elbow to the head of Bakersfield's Chris Collins in the first two minutes of Tuesday night's game.
Collins missed Friday night's game and is not expected to play tonight or Sunday against the Wranglers.
Sunday's game starts at 4 and fans can skate with the team afterward.
