The first game in San Jose would be one for the books. A total of 10 goals would be scored, but unfortunately the Silver and Black would come up just short.
The Rampage suffered a 6-4 loss to the San Jose Barracuda in front of 6,569 fans inside the SAP Center on Saturday night in the first ever meeting between the two teams.
San Antonio would get on the scoreboard first when Mat Clark put home his first goal of the season at 3:26 to give the Rampage the early lead. San Jose would take the lead with two goals 22 seconds apart from Bryan Lerg and Barclay Woodrow and Ryan Carpenter’s rebound goal made it 3-1 in favor of San Jose going into the second period.
The Barracuda made it a three goal game with Haley’s second tally of the game just over a minute into the middle frame, beating Roman Will. San Antonio answered back minutes later with Sam Henley’s goal to make it 4-2. San Jose would answer back before the period ended as Nikolay Goldobin buried a rebound of his own to make it a three goal game again going into the final frame.
San Antonio began the third period with a goaltender change as Spencer Martin replaced Roman Will in net. The Rampage responded with a tally from Nikita Zadorov just over a minute into the period to cut the deficit to two goals. Carpenter answered back for San Jose to make it 6-3, but Chris Bigras would score for the Silver and Black to make it a 6-4 final score.
The Rampage will return to the ice this afternoon to close out their two game series with San Jose at 5 p.m. inside the SAP Center.
