While the Alaska Aces and Idaho Steelheads were idle Saturday in their ECHL Kelly Cup Western Conference semifinal, the Bakersfield Condors jumped to a 2-0 series lead with a 2-0 victory over the visiting Stockton Thunder.
Former Aces goaltender Laurent Brossoit, who in the regular season tied an ECHL record with eight shutouts, pitched his third bagel in just seven playoff games with 22 saves.
Nick MacNeill scored a first-period power-play goal and Greg Miller added a man-advantage marker in the third period.
Things got edgy at the buzzer, just as in Alaska's 6-4 win over Stockton on Friday, which leveled that series 1-1.
