Box Score | Game Notes

SAN ANTONIO (October 26, 2013) – Rookie forward Vincent Trocheck scored two goals and tacked on an assist on Saturday night to help the Rampage (3-5-0-0) to a 4-2 victory over the Oklahoma City Barons (4-5-0-1) at AT&T Center in front of 5,113 fans.

The victory secured a weekend split with the visiting Barons and snapped a three-game skid for the Silver and Black.

Trocheck’s three-point game marked his second multi-point game in as many nights, as the 20-year-old had a goal and an assist on Friday. Trocheck now paces the Rampage with eight points (five goals, three assists) in eight games. 

Forwards Joey Crabb (one goal, one assist) and Garrett Wilson (two assists) also recorded multi-point efforts on the night. Wilson has tallied four assists in his last two games.

Rampage goaltender Michael Houser turned aside 25-of-27 shots to earn his second victory in only his second start of the year. The rookie netminder claimed his first AHL victory on Oct. 13 at Chicago.

For the second-straight night, the Rampage struck first against the Barons. Rampage forward Bobby Butler tallied his second in as many nights at 4:38 while on the power play with a snipe from the top of the left circle. Wilson and Trocheck collected assists on the tally.
San Antonio held Oklahoma City to only one shot on goal through the first eight minutes of action. The Barons had a power-play in that span, but the Rampage prevented the visitors from recording a shot on goal.
Oklahoma City knotted the game at 1-1 with a goal from Matthew Ford at 15:21. Linus Omark, who had four goals on Friday night against the Rampage, fed Ford a perfect cross ice pass. Houser went post-to-post and made the initial save, but Ford was able to tuck the rebound under the Rampage goaltender.
Trocheck looked to give the Rampage the lead with just under four minutes remaining in the frame, but rang a wrist shot off the post from the high slot. The two teams went into the first intermission tied, 1-1, with the Rampage holding an 11-8 edge in shots.
San Antonio took a 2-1 lead only 18 seconds into the second period, marking the fastest goal the Rampage have scored to start a period. Jon Matsumoto tried a wrap-around shot, and the puck went to the top of the crease right to Crabb, who made no mistake burying it into the net.
Trocheck extended the Rampage lead to 3-1 with a snipe at 4:48 of the second period. The rookie forward charged down the left wing on a 2-on-1 and waited out Roy before firing a shot over the glove of the Barons netminder and into the back of the net.
The Rampage held Oklahoma City to only nine shots in the middle frame and held a 3-1 advantage after 40 minutes of action. Entering the game, San Antonio won both games in which they held the lead after two periods of action.
The Barons made it a one-goal game with a power play goal at 4:50 of the third period. Rampage defenseman Mike Mottau attempted to clear the zone, but his stick shattered and the puck landed right on the tape of Taylor Fedun, who deposited the puck into the net.
Houser held strong for the Rampage down the stretch of the game and Trocheck tallied an empty-net goal with 43 seconds remaining to secure the 4-2 win for San Antonio.

Trocheck was awarded First Star of the Game for his efforts, while Butler was named the Second Star and Houser earned the Third Star nod. The Rampage finished the game 1-for-2 on the power play, while Oklahoma City was 1-for-4 with the man advantage.
The Rampage wrap up their three-game homestand on Saturday, Nov. 2 at 7:00 p.m. against the Charlotte Checkers at AT&T Center. The game will also mark a MAGIC 105.3 $1 Hot Dog and $1 Popcorn Night at AT&T Center.
