Rampage cool off IceHogs with 4-2 triumph

Tuesday’s Boxscores

Joel Perrault scored twice and added an assist for a game-high three points as San Antonio ended Rockford’s six-game points streak (5-0-0-1) with a 4-2 road win over the IceHogs on Tuesday at the MetroCentre.

Perrault is now riding a five-game scoring streak (3-6-9) for the Rampage, who improved to 14-5-0-0 in their last 19 contests.

David Spina and Alex Bourret also scored for San Antonio, which jumped to a 3-0 lead by the 12:45 mark of the second period.

Rockford’s Jack Skille put his team on the board at 15:23, and Pascal Pelletier’s power play goal at 8:03 of the third stanza pulled the IceHogs within one score. But Perrault tallied a late empty-netter to seal San Antonio’s victory.

Rockford suffered its first regulation loss since Dec. 30 at Quad City.

Spina (1-1-2) and defenseman Dylan Reese (0-2-2) joined Perrault in posting multiple points for the Rampage, and goaltender Josh Tordjman stopped 20 of 22 shots between the pipes.

Milwaukee scored twice in the first period and ex-Moose goaltender Drew MacIntyre made it stand up as the Admirals took a 2-1 road win over Manitoba before 6,128 fans at the MTS Centre.

Defenseman Robert Dietrich gave Milwaukee the early lead on the power play 3:53 into the game, and Patric Hornqvist made it 2-0 at the 12:44 mark.

The Moose got on the board when Michel Ouellet lit the lamp at 18:14 of the middle frame, but they were unable to find the equalizer and saw their four-game winning streak come to an end. Goaltender Cory Schneider‘s personal 13-game winning streak was also snapped, as he suffered his first AHL loss since Oct. 10.

Milwaukee, meanwhile, is now riding a 12-game points streak (9-0-2-1).

MacIntyre, a Second Team AHL All-Star with the Moose last season, finished with 27 saves on 28 shots in his first game against his former club. He moved into a tie for the league lead with 18 wins on the season (18-6-1).

The teams will square off for a rematch on Wednesday in Winnipeg.

A pair of third-period goals lifted Toronto to a 3-1 road win over Iowa on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Arena.

Alex Foster broke a 1-1 tie with a shorthanded goal at 5:30 of the final frame, and Max Taylor provided an insurance marker 2:22 later.

The Marlies took a 1-0 advantage when Brent Aubin scored with 1:11 left in the opening period, but the Chops’ Ajay Baines scored unassisted 1:51 into the second to tie it.

Marlies goaltender Justin Pogge made 21 saves in the victory, which kept Toronto from suffering its first three-game winless skid since mid-November.
