Rampage Drop 6-3 Decision to Rockford

October 31, 2014 - American Hockey League (AHL) - San Antonio Rampage News Release

SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Rampage (5-4-0-0) fell to the Rockford IceHogs (6-2-0-1) 6-3 in front of 4,469 on Friday night at the AT&T Center. The Silver and Black dropped back-to-back games for the first time this season.

Greg Zanon tallied two assists, and Blake Parlett notched his first goal of the season for the Rampage. Bobby Butler extended his point streak to four games with an assist on Ryan Martindale's power play goal in the second period.

Rockford got on the board first, as Matt Carey's wrist shot on the break gave the IceHogs a 1-0 lead with less than five minutes left in the first period. The Rampage answered quickly, as Blake Parlett deflected Alex Petrovic's blast from the point for his first goal of the season to knot the game at one at 16:07.

Rockford took a 2-1 lead with a Joakim Nordstrom backhand goal on a 5-on-3 power play early in the second period. Midway through the frame, the IceHogs extended their lead to two goals when Phillip Danault's cross-ice pass gave Garret Ross a clear shot on net from the slot.

With 7:23 remaining in the period, the Rampage struck on a power play, as Butler found Martindale on a break to make it 3-2. The goal marked Martindale's second of the season, both of which have come with the man advantage.

The IceHogs converted on their first shot on goal in the third period, as Ross notched his second of the game at 11:27. San Antonio answered, as Connor Brickley tipped in Greg Zanon's slap shot from the point to make it 4-3 less than 30 seconds later. The Rampage's rally would fall short, as Rockford got an insurance goal from Danault with less than four minutes remaining and Ross completed the hat trick with an empty-net goal from center ice to secure a 6-3 win for the IceHogs.
