SAN ANTONIO 4, ROCKFORD 2
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.
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.
MILWAUKEE 2, MANITOBA 1
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.
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.
TORONTO 3, IOWA 1
A pair of third-period goals lifted Toronto to a 3-1 road win over Iowa on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Arena.
Marlies goaltender Justin Pogge made 21 saves in the victory, which kept Toronto from suffering its first three-game winless skid since mid-November.
