San Antonio right wing Brett MacLean tallied two assists to become the all-time franchise points leader in the Rampage’s 4-2 victory over the Oklahoma City Barons Saturday night at the Cox Convention Center.


Center Andrew Ebbett registered a three-point night with one goal and two assists, while defenseman Garrett Stafford added one goal and one assist for his fifth multiple point game of the season.


A battle between the AHL’s top road power-play team (Rampage) and the league’s top penalty killing unit (Barons) began with four consecutive power-play goals.


Oklahoma City defenseman Taylor Chorney netted his first goal of the season to snap an 0-for-22 power play scoreless streak for the Barons 8:58 after the initial face off to give Oklahoma City a 1-0 lead.


San Antonio netted the equalizer for a 1-1 score as Stafford sent a centering pass to right wing Petr Prucha who beat Barons goaltender Martin Gerber low glove side 15:46 into the first period on the power play. Ebbett provided the additional helper while Stafford picked up his 12th power-play assist of the season.


The Rampage took a 2-1 advantage just nine seconds into their fifth power-play opportunity as Ebbett assisted on Stafford’s shot from the high slot that went through traffic and behind Gerber into the back of the net at the 13:14 mark of the second period. MacLean added the second assist to tie former San Antonio center Joel Perrault with 133 career Rampage points.


The Barons evened the score at 2-2 on the power play with 15 seconds remaining in the middle stanza when right wing Colin McDonald tipped the puck into the lower right corner past Rampage netminder Joe Fallon. Alexandre Giroux made the assist on the play making him the 44th player in AHL history to collect 600 points.


San Antonio reclaimed the lead 3-2 as Ebbett’s shot from the right post beat Gerber high glove side at the 5:04 mark of the third period. MacLean supplied the assist making him the Rampage’s all-time points leader with 134.


The Rampage extended their lead to 4-2 as David Brine assisted on Ryan Hollweg’s fifth goal of the season 7:33 into the third period.


With 2:18 remaining in the game, Barons head coach Todd Nelson pulled Gerber in favor of a sixth attacker, however, the Rampage were able to hold onto their lead and win the game 4-2.


Fallon finished the night with 30 saves on 32 shot attempts and Gerber turned aside 34 of 38 Rampage shots.


The Rampage conclude a three-in-three series tomorrow afternoon as they return home to host the Hamilton Bulldogs at 4:30 p.m. at the AT&T Center.
