Breaking Records, Taking Names

Since kicking off the Rodeo Road Trip on Feb. 5 vs the Marlies, the Rampage have gone 5-0-0-1, winning their last five games for the longest winning streak of the season to date. Extending back to the Jan. 29 win over Texas at Cedar Park, the Rampage have collected at least a point in each of their last seven road games (6-0-0-1) to set a new franchise record. Additionally, the club is on an 11-game point streak dating back to Jan. 24 (7-0-2-2), which shatters the previous franchise record of nine as well as sets a 2013-14 American Hockey League season record. The team has points in 15 of their last 16 games.

With the Rochester win over Iowa on Wednesday night, the Rampage now sit five points out of the eighth and final playoff spot currently being occupied by the Milwaukee Admirals. When they hit the ice again on Friday, it will be on the Amerks' ice in the Blue Cross Arena with two huge Western Conference points on the line.

They play their second three-in-three of the season this weekend, traveling further north to Ricoh Coliseum on Saturday for an afternoon tilt with the Toronto Marlies -- who sit at third place in the West with 62 points -- before hitting a different Ontario town on Sunday afternoon when they again face the Hamilton Bulldogs inside FirstOntario Centre.

San Antonio's last regulation loss came at the hands of the Amerks -- a 3-2 decision at AT&T Center on Jan. 18. They have yet to make a mark in the win column against the Marlies this year, going 0-1-1-1 through three games in the season series, and crushed the Bulldogs 4-1 on Monday afternoon in Hamilton.

Six points are up for grabs this weekend -- it's getting very close to now or never for the Silver and Black.

Head coach Tom Rowe believes in both consistency and chemistry, keeping his lines the same throughout the last five games. Drew Shore has benefited from this, as he has been playing lights out for the Rampage since rejoining the team on Feb. 1. He is currently riding a four-game goal streak, and has goals in five of his last six games. Bobby Butler has been the primary assist on all four of Shore's goals during the center's current streak, and is riding a streak of his own with five assists in his last four games. Garrett Wilson, the final part of the Rampage's hottest line, isn't slacking either -- the young winger has a goal and an assist in his last two games.
