After the Bakersfield Condors fired back from a three-goal deficit with five unanswered goals Saturday night for a 5-3 win at Stockton that wrapped the ECHL Western Conference semifinal series -- Bako won in five games -- the schedule for the conference finals between the Alaska Aces and Condors has been finalized.
Bako trailed 3-0 deep into the second period before it reeled off its goal barrage -- Ryan Watson bagged the last three strikes with the game-tying goal, game-winning goal and insurance goal. Former Aces goaltender Laurent Brossoit stopped 17 shots.
