The San Antonio Rampage swept the Rockford IceHogs in back-to-back games as they claimed a 3-2 victory at the AT&T Center Friday night and are now tied for first in the league with a 11-4-0-1 record good for 23 points.


Despite being outshot 11-10 in the first period, the Rampage were able to get some quality shots on Rockford netminder Alec Richards but unfortunately took some unlucky bounces and the game remained scoreless heading into the second period.

San Antonio claimed the first lead of the game off right wing Brett MacLean’s goal 8:06 into the second period. Mikkel Boedker assisted on MacLean’s backhanded shot at the left post beating Richards low stick side for a 1-0 lead.

Rockford right wing Hugh Jessiman netted an equalizer on the power play 1:31 later to even the score 1-1. Nick Leddy’s shot from the left faceoff circle was deflected by Jessiman to the upper right corner past Rampage goaltender Al Montoya’s left shoulder.

The Rampage took a 2-1 advantage 16:57 into the second period as leading scorer Matt Beaudoin scored his ninth goal of the season. Alex Picard sent a cross-ice pass to Beaudoin at the left goal line who punched a shot low stick side past Richards. Viktor Tikhonov was credited with the second assist.

San Antonio extended their lead 3-1 as Boedker scored the game-winning goal at the 18:04 mark of the second period. Rookie Chris Summers supplied his first assist of his professional career on Boedker’s snap shot that went high glove side. Boedker’s goal marked his fifth multi-point game of the season to lead all Rampage attackers.

IceHogs defenseman Leddy made it a 3-2 contest after his goal 3:20 into the third period. Leddy fired a bullet from the left faceoff circle beating Montoya high stick side. Brian Connelly and Ryan Potulny added the helpers.

Rockford head coach Bill Peters pulled Richards with 45 seconds left in the game in favor of a sixth attacker, but the IceHogs could not convert the man-advantage and the Rampage finalized their victory at 3-2.

Montoya stopped 36 of 38 IceHogs shot attempts while Richards made 26 saves on 29 attempts at net.

The Rampage return to the ice on Sunday afternoon as they host the Chicago Wolves at 3 p.m. at the AT&T Center.
