San Antonio Defeats Chicago 2-1 in Defensive Battle
CHICAGO, IL (Feb. 17, 2018) – Reid Petryk's shorthanded goal mid-way through the second period was the difference maker as the San Antonio Rampage (26-20-6-0) defeated the Chicago Wolves (25-17-6-2) 2-1 on Saturday at Allstate Arena.
Chicago got out to an early lead at 11:19 of the opening period when Griffin Reinhart's slap shot from the left point snuck past netminder Ville Husso. San Antonio capitalized on a power-play opportunity less than two minutes later when David Warsofsky's shot attempt was deflected into the net by Andrew Agozzino at 13:05.
Petryk gave the Silver and Black a one-goal advantage at 8:31 of the second frame when he forced a turnover in the defensive zone and went coast-to-coast before going top shelf on netminder Kasimir Kaskisuo for his first shorthanded tally of the season.
The third period fell scoreless, as the Rampage held off the Wolves' extra attacker for the final 2:09 of regulation to collect their second consecutive victory.
