The San Antonio Rampage pulled away in the third period scoring three goals to beat the Oklahoma City Barons 6-3 at the Cox Convention Center on Tuesday night.

The Barons opened the scoring just 17 seconds into the game off left wing Jean-Francois Jacques’ goal. Jacques received the puck at the right post and punched it in low glove side past Rampage goaltender Al Montoya. Teemu Hartikainen and Jake Taylor earned the assists.

At the 4:06 mark of the opening frame, center Tim Stapleton scored on a five-on-three power play advantage to tie the game at 1-1. Left wing Alex Picard passed to Stapleton in the slot who fired a shot over the right glove of Barons netminder Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers. Garrett Stafford provided the second assist.

Just 1:56 after their first tally, Rampage right wing Jed Ortmeyer scored his first goal in a Rampage sweater. Ortmeyer benefited off a Barons defensive turnover in the neutral zone to shoot a backhanded shot to beat Drouin-Deslauriers on the low glove side for a 2-1 San Antonio advantage.

Barons left winger Greg Stewart netted his first goal of the season with a wrist shot that beat Montoya on the low blocker side at the 16:03 mark to close the first period with an even score, 2-2.

Oklahoma City claimed a 3-2 edge when Hartikainen converted a goal on the man-advantage at the 14:00 mark of the second period when he punched in the rebound off of Liam Reddox’s shot.

The Barons lead only lasted 17 seconds as Brett MacLean earned his sixth goal of the season to tie the score at 3-3 at the 14:17 mark with a shot from the left wing boards past Drouin-Deslauriers’ right blocker. Andrew Ebbett and Michael Stone added the helpers.

The Rampage reclaimed the lead 45 seconds into the third period as Matt Beaudoin scored on the power play for a 4-3 advantage. Beaudoin’s shot from the slot went low underneath the right leg padding of Drouin-Deslauriers. MacLean and Stapleton each added their second point of the night with the assists.

San Antonio extended their lead to 5-3 as defenseman Maxim Goncharov scored his first professional goal at the 9:18 mark. Goncharov received the puck at the blue line and fired a bullet that went high glove side behind Drouin-Deslauriers. Mikkel Boedker earned his 11th assist of the season to lead the Rampage while MacLean added the second helper for his second three-point game of the season.

Barons head coach Todd Nelson pulled Drouin-Deslauriers with 1:13 left in the game in favor of a sixth attacker.

Rampage center Ebbett sealed the team’s victory at 6-3 with an empty net short-handed goal in the final minute of the game. Ebbett skated behind the net and wrapped around the right post to score on the open net.

Montoya finished the night with 32 saves on 35 shot attempts while Drouin-Deslauriers turned aside 27 of 32 Rampage shots.

The Rampage (9-4-1-0) return to the ice at 7 p.m. on Thursday night as they host the Rockford IceHogs in back-to-back games at the AT&T Center.
