Rampage edge out Barracuda at home



AT&T Center – After the San Antonio Rampage snapped a two-month long winless streak at home, they have turned their attention to finishing their nine-game home stand strong. They took a step in the right direction with another home win on Friday night.

Dennis Everburg converted on two goals as the Rampage earned a 2-1 win over the San Jose Barracuda in front of 6,661 fans at the AT&T Center.

San Jose would get on the scoreboard first nearly eight minutes into the game when Ryan Carpenter beat San Antonio goaltender Roman Will at 7:59 to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. Everburg would put home two goals three minutes apart to give the Rampage the 2-1 lead after 20 minutes.

Neither team would light the lamp in the final two periods as the Rampage held on for the 2-1 win. San Antonio outshot San Jose 37-30, including 15-9 in the middle frame. Barracuda net minder Troy Grosenick stopped 35-of-37 shots in the loss.

“It’s a big win and we’ve got to build off of it,” Rampage center Colin Smith said. “The points are so big and you don’t know what will happen down the playoff stretch and these two points are huge right now.”

Roman Will stopped 29-of-30 shots he faced, earning the Third Star of the Game. San Antonio finished 0-for-5 on the power play, while San Jose was 0-for-6.

“Roman was good,” Rampage Head Coach Dean Chenoweth said. “They made some tough plays at the net, threw a lot of pucks at the net. I thought he stood tall.”

The Rampage are now 19-19-7-0 (45 points) on the season and will return to the ice tomorrow night to complete their weekend set with San Jose at 7 p.m. at the AT&T Center.
