The San Antonio Rampage received third period goals from forward Greg Rallo and defenseman Nolan Yonkman to top the Chicago Wolves, 2-1, on Wednesday night at Allstate Arena.

After a scoreless opening period, Chicago scored the game’s first goal at the 8:36 mark of the second frame. Defenseman Yann Sauve sent a seeing-eye shot on goal that beat Rampage backstop Jacob Markstrom to give the Wolves a 1-0 lead. Center Jordan Schroeder and forward Anton Rodin notched the assists on Sauve’s second goal of the season.

Rallo tied the game for San Antonio 3:45 into the third period with a power-play goal. His shot from the slot eluded Chicago goaltender Eddie Lack and knotted the game at 1-1. Forwards Bracken Kearns and Bill Thomas were credited with the assists on Rallo’s 16th marker of the year.

Yonkman gave San Antonio a 2-1 edge just over four minutes later. He registered his second goal of 2011-12 on a shot from the blue line that beat Lack to his right. The lone helper on the play went to center Scott Timmins. 

Markstrom made 27 saves on 28 Wolves shots for his eighth win of the season. Lack turned aside 28 of 30 San Antonio attempts in the Chicago loss.

The Rampage end the Rodeo road trip with a 7-3-0-1 record and franchise-best winning percentage (.682%).

The Rampage (31-23-2-1) return home for Military Appreciation Night on Saturday when they host the Houston Aeros at 7 p.m. (CST) at the AT&T Center.
