TONIGHT'S MATCHUP: After closing out a three games-in three day stretch this past Sunday in Toledo, the Cyclones will play the next five games at U.S. Bank Arena beginning tonight against the Bakersfield Condors.  Cincinnati won’t play a road game until the day after Christmas, when they reunite with the Wheeling Nailers at WesBanco Arena. 


SCOUTING THE CONDORS: Bakersfield face the Cyclones for just the second time since Cincinnati resumed ECHL operation in 2006...and the first time ever at U.S. Bank Arena.  The Condors are tied for third in the Pacific Division with an 8-12-1-0 record after dropping back-to-back games against Toledo this past weekend.  Stephane Goulet is atop their team leaderboard in scoring with 18 points (9 goals, 9 assists) while Andrew Ianiero ranks second with 17.
WEST SIDE STORY: Cincinnati has enjoyed some success against the Western Conference over the years.  Since the 2006-07 season, they have accumulated a 5-3 record against teams from the “left coast” including a 1-0 record against Bakersfield.  They last met the Condors in March of 2008 when the Cyclones won 7-2.  It will be the first time since Cincinnati resumed ECHL operation that a Western Conference team makes a visit to U.S. Bank Arena for a regular season game.
THE 100 POINT CLUB:  This past Friday night, Dustin Sproat joined nine other players to notch 100 career points with this franchise.  With Sproat’s goal on Sunday against Toledo, he now has 101 points in a Cincinnati jersey - placing him just 10 points shy of Chris Rowland for eighth on the All-Time Points List.  Mathieu Aubin is also climbing the list...he has the sixth most all time, with 118.
