Rules on -1/-1 counters

If I have a 2/2 creature out, and my opponent hits it with a puncture bolt, and my creature gets a -1/-1 counter and 1 point of damage, can I use a Power Conduit to remove the -1/-1 counter before it dies?
No.

Right after the spell resolves, the 1/1 with 1 damage is Destroyed; Before any player gets priority to play any Spells/Abilities.
You could use the ability to place a +1/+1 counter on your creature in response to his puncture bolt

but I don't think that's what you're asking and the previous answer is correct, your 2/2 would be destroyed as a state based effect before you receive priority.
