San Antonio Rampage

The San Antonio Rampage improved to 9-3-1-0 in the 2017-18 campaign after skating in three games last week.

The Rampage started the week on Wednesday by falling 7-4 to the Grand Rapids Griffins. San Antonio allowed five unanswered goals in the second and third periods in the loss.

Julien Nantel got the Rampage on the board early in the first period when he found the back of the net to capitalize on a forced turnover in the Griffins zone. Vladislav Kamenev recorded his first point with the Rampage when he assisted on Andrew Agozzino's goal four minutes later.

Nantel tallied his second goal of the match in the second frame, earning his first multiple-goal game of his AHL career. Duncan Siemens had one helper and Dominic Toninato registered two assists in the contest.

The Rampage came back with a 6-0 win over the Rockford IceHogs on Friday. San Antonio goaltender Spencer Martin made 39 saves in his sixth career shutout and the Silver and Black tallied four power-play goals in the victory.

David Warsofsky scored his first marker of the season and Andrew Agozzino recorded a power-play goal, his third goal during a man advantage this campaign. Mason Geertsen tallied his second goal of the season to make it 5-0 after two frames and Reid Petryk added a sixth and final tally for the Rampage in the third period. Vladislav Kamenev had three assists in the game, while Warsofsky, Jesse Graham and Felix Girard each picked up one helper.

San Antonio closed out the week with 2-1 win over the Chicago Wolves. Tied at one after the first frame, both teams went scoreless through the middle period until Warsofsky found an open Agozzino in front of the net for the game-winning goal in the final stanza. Martin had 34 saves and tallied his sixth win of the campaign.

Martin has started between the pipes in eight games this season and has a 1.93 goals against average and .934 save percentage. The AHL announced Monday that the goaltender has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week. Martin stopped 73 of the 74 shots he faced during two starts last week to help the Rampage to back-to-back road wins. He posted a 0.50 goals-against average and .986 save percentage in those two contests.

Agozzino has registered 12 points (six points, six assists) this campaign and is tied with newly acquired Kamenev for the lead in team scoring.
