Around The AHL | Condors take title
Henderson Silver Knights head coach Manny Viveiros had termed his team’s postseason battle with the Bakersfield Condors as something much more than a battle for the Pacific Division title.
Said Viveiros after a Game 2 win, “There's no official Calder Cup this year, but this is our Calder Cup. You know, it means something to both these teams.”
The Condors now own that division championship after offensive dynamo Tyler Benson’s goal with 11:09 to go in regulation gave Bakersfield a 3-2 victory in Game 3 of the best-of-three Pacific Division before 7,420 at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night. Benson took a right-side pass from Cooper Marody, dipped below the Henderson defence, and snapped an off-wing short-side shot high past Silver Knights goaltender Logan Thompson.
