San Antonio Rampage forward Matt Beaudoin scored the overtime game winner in a 3-2 victory against the Grand Rapids Griffins on Sunday afternoon at Van Andel Arena. The Rampage claimed their third straight win in as many nights and lead the Western Conference with 37 points. 


Beaudoin continues to lead the Rampage scoring with 27 points, including six power-play goals and three game-winning goals.


Andrew Ebbett chipped in a goal and an assist this afternoon extending his point-streak to three games.


Grand Rapids defenseman Derek Meech opened the scoring for the second night in a row giving the Griffins a 1-0 lead 11:17 into the contest. Just six seconds into the Griffins’ first power play of the game, Meech fired a shot after the faceoff win that beat Rampage goaltender Matt Climie low stick side.


The Rampage evened the score at 1-1 as Ebbett scored a power-play goal at the 14:45 mark of the first period. Garrett Stafford assisted on Ebbett’s shot from the left faceoff circle that slid past Griffins goaltender Thomas McCollum low glove side.


San Antonio outshot Grand Rapids 22-12 in the second period, after each team tallied eight shots a piece in the opening frame.


The Griffins recorded their second shorthanded goal in as many nights when Travis Ehrhardt’s shot from the blue line went high stick side past Climie 6:20 into the middle frame to give Grand Rapids a 2-1 advantage.


Nearly six minutes later, Rampage right wing Petr Prucha netted the equalizer when he redirected Beaudoin’s pass over McCollum’s blocker and into the back of the net for a 2-2 score.


After a scoreless third period, the Rampage entered their fifth overtime game of the season where they sealed their victory at 3-2 when Beaudoin netted the game-winning goal on the power play 2:35 into the extra frame. Ebbett and Mikkel Boedker provided the assists.


Climie’s 29 saves on 31 Griffins shots earned him the third star of the game and his second consecutive win.


The Rampage (18-6-1-0) continue their five-game road trip with the next stop in Chicago on Wednesday when they face off against the Wolves at 7 p.m. at Allstate Arena.
