San Antonio Rampage hand Texas Stars fifth straight loss


The San Antonio Rampage scored twice in the third period to hand the Texas Stars their fifth straight loss in an American Hockey League game in San Antonio Friday night.

Julien Nantel’s goal early in the third period held up as the winning score for the Rampage (21-21-4-0).

Jim O’Brien tied the game at 2-all just over a minute before Nantel’s goal to shift momentum to the home side, which had 14,524 fans in attendance at the AT&T Center.

The Stars (20-20-1-2) trailed 1-0 after a first period goal by Rocco Grimaldi, but they managed to scored twice in the middle frame to take a 2-1 lead into the final period.

Denis Gurianov scored on assists by Travis Morin and Matt Mangene. The assist extended Morin’s point streak to six games.

Jason Dickinson gave the Stars the lead on a goal with less than five minutes left to play in the second period.

Jeremy Smith picked up the win for the Rampage, saving 26 out of 28 shots. Justin Peters, who was just acquired by the Dallas Stars in a trade with Arizona, lost his debut as he made 27 saves on 30 shots.

The tight matchup had the Rampage lead in shots 30-28. Neither team could cash in on the power play as Texas went 0-for-2 while San Antonio was 0-for-3.

The Stars will get another shot at the Rampage on Saturday night, this time at home as the puck drops at 7 p.m. at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park. Texas hasn’t won a game since Jan. 20 when they defeated Iowa on the road.
