After a scoreless first period, Travis Morin opened the scoring for the Stars 4:50 into the second frame when he collected his own rebound in front of the net and connected on his second attempt.

The Silver and Black took the lead at 6:25 when Andrei Mironov ricocheted the puck off a Stars skate and into the back of the net. Reid Petryk extended San Antonio's lead to two when he recorded an unassisted goal at 9:25 for his first of the 2017-18 season. Just 84 seconds later, the Rampage lit the lamp when Mironov set up Toninato with a breakaway opportunity on Stars goaltender Landon Bow at 10:49.
