Rampage Shut out by Wolves
SAN ANTONIO, TX - Oscar Dansk stopped all 31 shots he faced at the AT&T Center on Saturday night to backstop the Chicago Wolves (39-19-8) to a 5-0 shutout victory over the San Antonio Rampage (27-32-7), Dansk's second shutout of the season and San Antonio's third shutout defeat.
Five different Wolves scored goals, as the Rampage dropped to 0-6-1 in their last seven games. Jared Coreau surrendered four goals on 12 shots in 40 minutes of work. Evan Fitzpatrick stopped four of five shots in relief during the third period.
Tye McGinn opened the scoring at 1:04 of the first period, redirecting a Jake Bischoff point shot past Coreau for his seventh goal of the season. McGinn has scored in each of his past three games against the Rampage.
Keegan Kolesar made it 2-0 Wolves at 13:27 of the second period. Coreau stopped a point shot from Griffin Reinhart, but Kolesar was alone in front for the rebound for his 16th goal of the season.
The Wolves sored early in the second period as well. Matt Weis redirected a Bischoff pass behind Coreau at 1:56 of the second period for his third goal of the year.
Nic Hague beat Coreau with a backhander from the slot with 2.3 seconds left in the second period, his 12th goal of the season and the final shot Coreau would face.
In the third, the Wolves made it 5-0 when a centering pass by Tomas Hyka banked off the skate of Tyler Wotherspoon and over the goal line for Hyka's 12th at 7:17.
Weis, Hyka, Bischoff, and Curtis McKenzie all had two-point games for Chicago.
The loss was San Antonio's first shutout defeat on home ice since they suffered a 3-0 loss to Chicago on March 2, 2017. The Wolves also became the first team besides the Texas Stars to beat the Rampage in regulation at the AT&T Center since October 26th.
With ten games remaining on the regular-season schedule, the Rampage are 11 points out of the Central Division's final playoff spot.
