TUCSON, AZ - Jonas Gustafsson stopped all 27 shots faced from the Tucson Roadrunners as the Bakersfield Condors won 4-0 on Friday night.

At 6:11 of the first period, Patrick Russell would score what turned out to be the game-winning goal on a wraparound effort.
From there the Condors added two goals in the second period and an empty net goal in the third for the 4-0 final.
