Rampage 2, Wolves 1

The SportsXchange

Despite a third period surge, the Chicago Wolves couldn't keep pace with the San Antonio Rampage Saturday night, falling 2-1 at AT&T Center.

There was plenty of action from the get-go at both ends, but the first period proved scoreless, with shots favoring the Rampage 9-6.

Once the second period was underway, San Antonio (25-25-1-4) finally worked its way onto the scoreboard. On the heels of a shutout against the Texas Stars Friday, Wolves goaltender Matt Climie hadn't allowed a score since the Rockford Icehogs' Martin St. Pierre scored at the 19:29 mark of the first period in their game against Chicago on Feb. 24.

But his streak of 130:21 with no goals allowed ended when Rampage centerman Greg Rallo redirected a point shot by defenseman Zach Miskovic into the mesh at 10:19. Miskovic was traded by the Wolves to San Antonio last month for future considerations.

The Rampage held on to their 1-0 lead into the third frame but Darren Haydar and Andrew Ebbett got back to their old tricks quick when Haydar fed a pass to a streaking Ebbett who pocketed the equalizer handily at 4:23.

Tied at one, the Rampage pulled ahead again as centerman Zach Hamill capitalized on a scrum of players in front of Chicago's net and a sprawled out Climie to beat the goalie stick side at 9:36.

Chicago (27-18-4-3) had a power play opportunity late in the third when Brandon Nash took a holding penalty, but the man advantage failed to help even the score.

The Wolves face off against the Stars on Tuesday night.
