Rampage Weekly Update

March 30, 2009 - American Hockey League (AHL) - San Antonio Rampage News Release


Friday & Saturday, Apr. 3 & 4 vs. Iowa

@ AT&T Center, 7:00 p.m.

The Iowa Chops make their last visit to the AT&T Center with a weekend doubleheader. Iowa enters the week trailing the fourth playoff spot by three points. The Rampage and Chops have split six previous games, including 1-1 in San Antonio.


PLEASE DON'T STOP THE MUSIC: San Antonio has won five of their last six games including three of four on the road. The Rampage enter the week after sweeping a three-in-three series. The three-game set took the Rampage to Cleveland, then Syracuse and back to San Antonio.

STANDING TALL: Recently acquired goalie Karl Goehring has adjusted nicely in his return to the Alamo City. The 8-year AHL veteran gave up 6 goals in his Rampage season debut but rebounded to win three straight games including a 38-save night in a 4-1 win versus another former club, Syracuse.

MEMBERS ONLY: Do you remember? Last week we sung the praises of David Spina and Joel Perrault, who both had big weeks. Spina is riding a five- game points streak with a goal and 6 assists, while Perrault has points in six straight registering nine points. Both players missed the entire franchise re- cord 17-game winless streak but have come back to help the Rampage go 29- 17-2-3 since their return.

BIG MAC: Brett MacLean isn't worried about hitting the 'rookie wall.' The All- Star forward has totaled nine point streaks of at least two games including a recently completed four-game streak. MacLean tallied two power-play goals and four assists helping the Rampage to three wins in those four games.

ICE CHIPS - Joel Perrault

The Rampage are red-hot and no one is hot- ter than Joel Perrault. The soon to be 26- year-old veteran is enjoying a career season despite missing 26 games to start the year.

Perrault has hit career highs in goals, assists and points in just 48 games. He enters the week with a three-game scoring streak and six-game points streak while collecting 6 goals and 3 assists. Included in that total are two game-winners and a game-tying goal.
