The Thunder turned a close game into a route Friday night in Stockton, erasing a one-goal deficit late in the second period and going on to a 6-3 victory over the Bakersfield Condors.
The Condors (5-10-1-2) gave up a season-high 50 shots as they are 0-3-0-1 over their last four games. Brian Stewart stopped 44 shots.
Bakersfield lead 3-2 late in the second, only to see the Thunder strike quickly with a pair of goals in a span of 2:01 late in the period.
Nathan Deck tied the game at 17:49 and Erick Hunter's power-play goal at 19:50 put the Thunder up for good.
It was a similar story in the third -- two quick goals, this time in a span of 1:19 midway through the period -- as the Thunder ended any threat of a come back.
The Condors trailed 1-0 when Alex Hudson tied the game midway through the first and trailed 2-1 when Francis Meilleur tied the game late in the first with his first goal.
Oliver Malka put the Condors up 3-2 with a power-play goal, his fourth of the season, 3:20 into the second.
