The San Jose Barracuda thrashed the Bakersfield Condors with a 4-1 win at the Rabobank Arena on Wednesday night.

The Barracuda carried a two-game winning streak into Wednesday’s tilt against the Condors, and were on the road for the first time since Dec. 4.

The score should’ve been close — but Troy Grosenick made some notable saves to keep the Barracuda in the game — including a last-minute glove save to rob the Condors of a potential goal.

The Barracuda grabbed a 1-0 lead at 15:52 of the first period when Nikolay Goldobin waltzed in and beat Nick Ellis on the short side for his sixth goal of the season.

Jere Sallinen went to the box for hooking at 9:26. The Barracuda capitalized on the power play as Barlay Goodrow scored his 11th goal of the season to make it a 2-0 game just 77 seconds later.

The Barracuda were outshot 11-7, but led 2-0 after 20 minutes.

The Condors had an answer for the speed of the Barracuda in the second period.

Danny O’Regan took a pass from Jon Martin and put it past Ellis for his eighth goal of the season to extend the Barracuda lead to 3-0 at 13:10.
