The San Jose Barracuda hung on on Saturday night for a 4-3 win over the San Diego Gulls to complete a back-to-back road sweep.
The Barracuda won in a shootout on Friday night, but on Saturday they needed just 60 minutes to come away with the victory.
Taking a 4-1 lead into the third period, the Barracuda hung on after the Gulls converted on a 5-on-3 midway through the period and scored with 2.1 seconds on the clock to cut the lead to 4-3. But it was too little, too late.
San Jose started off fast with two goals in the first period. Jeremy Langlois and Karl Stollery converted on goals. Early in the second period, Mark Cundari scored a power play goal on a shot from the point to give the Barracuda a three-goal lead.
It was enough to hold off the Gulls and advance the Barracuda’s road record to 4-2-0-0. San Jose is 5-6-0-1 overall.
Up next, the Barracuda will play the Condors in Bakersfield at a special 10:30am start time on Wednesday.
