The San Antonio Rampage (10-3-6-0) broke a four-game losing winless streak as they scored four consecutive goals in their 4-1 win over the Chicago Wolves on Saturday evening in front of 5,020 fans inside Allstate Arena.
Chicago scored the opening goal when Jacob Doty beat San Antonio goaltender Calvin Pickard with a shot over his glove at 5:12 to put the home squad up by a goal. The Rampage responded midway through the period with a power play tally at 14:42 off the stick of Maxim Noreau to tie the game going into the middle frame.
Neither team would light the lamp in the second period, but the Silver and Black outshot Chicago 12-10 in the period. Each team had one goal apiece going into the final stanza.
San Antonio scored three goals in the final frame to pull away. Dennis Everberg and Trevor Cheek tallied goals 3:21 apart to take a 3-1 lead. Chicago pulled goaltender Phoenix Copley and Colin Smith added an empty-net tally to seal the 4-1 win for the Rampage.
Pickard stopped 23 of 24 shots he faced, while Copley made 19 saves on 22 San Antonio shots. Chicago was 0-for-2 on the power play, while San Antonio scored on one of two man advantages.
The Rampage will now return to the ice on Sunday afternoon to close out their weekend series with the Wolves at 3 p.m. inside Allstate Arena.
