The San Francisco Bulls begin a friendly stretch of their schedule with five out of the next six games at home, beginning with games Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Cow Palace.

The Bulls host the Idaho Steelheads on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and the Ontario Reign on Sunday at 2:15 p.m..

The Bulls have won back-to-back games for the first time this season after topping the Stockton Thunder 3-2 on the road Monday. Points leader Mark Lee scored with less than three minutes left in the third period to help lift the Bulls over the defending Western Conference champions.

Tyler Beskorowany continued with his heavy workload, stopping 28 of 30 shots for the victory. He has started eight of the team's 10 games between the pipes and has stopped a league-high 263 shots.

Forwards Dale Mitchell (back) and Ryan McDonough (concussion), who have both been sidelined by injuries the past week, were placed on the 21-day injured reserve. In addition, the Bulls lost forward Riley Brace, who was recalled by their AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks. On Wednesday, the Bulls bolstered their offense by acquiring rookie forward Kyle Bodie from the Cincinnati Cyclones for future consideration.

The Bulls take on an Idaho team that stole two points from them in a 3-2 overtime loss on Oct. 23. The Bulls failed to hold a late lead, and lost in the extra session. Beskorowany was the unlucky loser playing against his former team. It's the first of four meetings against Idaho at the Cow Palace. Idaho sits one point ahead of the Bulls in fifth place in the western conference.

The Bulls finish their weekend set against the Reign, who defeated the Bulls 2-0 in Ontario last week. The reigning Pacific Division champions are back on top of the division standings in the early going.

NOTE: The Bulls are doing several promotions this weekend. Friday is a schedule poster giveaway to all fans in attendance, Saturday is cancer awareness night and the first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a fake moustache in honor of Movember and Sunday is the first family day of the season.
