Thunder has little time to shake off disheartening loss

The Thunder are in trouble. The only question is how it reacts to the situation.

There’s no doubt Friday’s 2-1 loss to Bakersfield stings. The Thunder had the lead with less than eight minutes to go, and now trail the series 3-1 and could be eliminated on Saturday. The Condors final goal was a terrible blow as Joel Broda just flung puck on net from 50 feet away, and it sailed past goaltender Brian Foster. It was a bitter finish to an outstanding performance by Foster, who turned away the Condors time after time through most of the game.

So the Thunder is in a big hole, and has several key players out with injuries. It’s a tough spot, but Stockton either deals with it or the season is over.

We’re about to see if the Thunder has one more big comeback in it.
