The San Antonio Rampage closed out their first road trip of the season with a 6-2 loss to the Rockford IceHogs (3-5-0) on Wednesday night at BMO Harris Bank Center.

The loss is the third in the last four games, which saw San Antonio collect four out of a possible eight points.


San Antonio got on the scoreboard first on Jordan Nolan’s first goal of the season. The captain redirected a Nolan Steven’s shot past Rockford netminder Kevin Lankinen to put the visitors up a goal nearly eight minutes into the game.

Rockford responded with three goals in three minutes to take a 3-1 lead into the second period. Tyler Sikura put home a rebound off his own missed shot at 12:07, Nick Moutrey scored off a one-timer at 14:11, and Mackenzie Entwistle poked the puck past Ville Husso to at 15:02.

The IceHogs piled it on in the second period following a San Antonio turnover as Reese Johnson put the puck home from between the circles to put the home team up 4-1. Adam Boqvist made it 5-1 as beat Husso with a wrist shot from the right circle at 16:44 of the second period.

San Antonio stopped the bleeding at 3:42 of the third period when Derrick Pouliot put a wrist shot over Lankinen’s shoulder for his second goal of the season. The goal gives Pouliot a point streak of four games.

Jacob Nilsson closed the scoring with an empty-net goal at 13:32, making it 6-2.

San Antonio finished 0-for-5 on the power play, making it just the second time all season the team has been scoreless on the man advantage.

The Rampage are now 4-2-3 (11 points) on the season and will return to the ice on Saturday when they welcome the Texas Stars (3-5-0, 8 points) at the AT&T Center with the puck drop set for 7 p.m.
