San Antonio’s first goal came at the 4:23 mark when Alex Picard tallied his fourth power-play goal of the season. With only four seconds remaining on the Rampage power play, Picard redirected Matt Beaudoin’s shot from the left faceoff circle over goalie Edward Pasquale. Oliver Ekman-Larsson earned his first Rampage point recording the second assist on the play. Picard and Beaudoin both extended their point streaks to four games.

The Rampage struck again just 33 seconds later to extend their lead 2-0 when Ryan Hollweg’s shot from the left faceoff dot beat Pasquale high stick side. David Brine and Ryan Weston supplied the assists each receiving their first point of the season.

Chicago center Jason Krog cut the deficit in half to 2-1 scoring at the 12:21 mark of the first period. Wolves left wing Frederick Pettersson centered a pass to Krog who tipped the puck over Rampage goaltender Matt Climie’s right shoulder. Andre Deveaux chipped in the second assist on Krog’s second goal of the season.

The Rampage extended their lead to 3-1 when Bracken Kearns scored a power- play goal at the 15:27 mark in the first stanza. Kearns redirected Mikkel Boedker’s shot from the left faceoff circle over the stick of Pasquale and into the back of the net. Brett MacLean added the second helper with his eighth assist of the season.

San Antonio took a 4-1 advantage off Mikkel Boedker’s power-play goal at the 17:41 mark of the opening frame. Boedker’s one-timer from the right faceoff circle went high stick side past Pasquale. Ekman-Larsson earned his second point of the night as he and Tim Stapleton combined for the assists.

After letting in four goals in the opening 20 minutes, Chicago head coach Don Lever substituted netminder Drew MacIntyre for Pasquale who finished with 13 saves on 17 shot attempts.

Chicago made it a 4-2 game at the 6:26 mark of the second period on Paul Postma’s power-play goal. Postma fired a shot from the blue line that passed Climie low stick side and into the back of the net. Assists were provided by Jared Ross and Krog.

Viktor Tikhonov solidified the Rampage victory with a goal 2:23 into the third period. Picard passed to Tikhonov who was camped out in front of the crease and his shot beat MacIntyre high to the stick side. Beaudoin added the second assist for his second point of the night.

Climie turned aside 25 of 27 Wolves shot attempts while Pasquale and MacIntyre combined for 33 saves out of 38 Rampage shots.

The Rampage return to the ice on Wednesday morning when the team travels to the Peoria Civic Center Carver Arena to face the Rivermen with a 10:05 am puck drop.
