Late Power Play Goal Pushes Rampage Over Depleted Texas Stars 2-1

A depleted Stars' roster fell to the San Antonio Rampage this evening at the AT&T Center. The club lost Jason Dickinson to recall and clearly had a few injuries or other issues on defense that forced Matt Mangene to move back to the blue line. The Stars shuffled things around through the game as they only had 17 skaters in the lineup.

San Antonio opened the scoring as Jim O'Brien scored a quick one three minutes into the game. Texas answered on the power play in the third, but a goal by San Antonio just two minutes later would be the ultimate winner. The Rampage winner came on the power play, just 14 seconds away from the expiration of the minor.

Landon Bow stopped 23 of 25 and took the loss. Texas was on a four-game win streak against the Rampage dating back to the start of the season. The Stars now head home to play a pair against San Diego.

Tonight's lines:
DeFazio-Dowling-Elie
Fyten-Smith-Herbert
Ranford-Morin-Stransky
