Rampage Wrap Up Road Schedule With 5-0 Loss to Stars

The San Antonio Rampage (29-34-3-6) were shut out for the first time since December 20, falling to the league-leading Texas Stars (46-17-3-6) 5-0 on Friday night at the Cedar Park Center.
Chris Mueller tallied a goal and two assists to lead Texas and Jack Campbell stopped all 27 shots he faced in the win. Rob Madore finished with 19-of-20 saves in a strong relief effort.
With a two-on-one break early in the period, Texas kicked off the scoring as Scott Glennie and Chris Mueller combined for the game’s first tally on a give-and-go play. Just 47 seconds later, the Stars scored again as John Klingberg sent a pass to the crease and Mike Hedden was there to deflect it in, giving the Stars a 2-0 lead just 4:30 into the game.
With 2:32 remaining in the first, Curtis McKenzie buried a rebound off a Derek Hulak shot. The Stars would extend their lead before the end of the period. A late penalty, the first of the game, gave the league’s top power play an opportunity with the man advantage at 19:33. Mueller tallied his second point of the game, slipping the puck past Houser to give the Stars a 4-0 lead with 4.7 seconds left on the clock. The four goals allowed in the first ties a season-high for goals allowed in a period.
Rob Madore, who was recalled to San Antonio on April 10, came in relief to start the second period, making saves on all (number) shots he faced in a scoreless second period.
William Wrenn and Mueller created a 2-on-none break late in the game as Mueller left the puck for Wrenn on the crease and he backhanded it past Madore to give the Stars a 5-0 lead at 14:41.
The Stars outshot the Rampage 33-27, including a 24-13 margin through the first two periods. Texas finished 1-for-3 on the power play while the Rampage were 0-for-3 with the man advantage. Friday night also marked the first professional game for defenseman Shayne Taker, who signed an amateur tryout contract with the Rampage on April 8.
The Rampage return home Saturday night for the second game of the three-in-three series with the Stars. It will be Military Appreciation Night at the AT&T Center as San Antonio will wear military-themed jerseys to honor the men and women who serve our country. Puck drop is slated for 7 p.m.
