SAN ANTONIO – Tack on another win for the Rampage.
Thanks to an impressive performance in net from goaltender Ville Husso and two goals from forward Nathan Walker, San Antonio topped the Chicago Wolves 3-0, improving to 3-0 on the young season.
The Rampage's offense scored multiple goals for the third time this season and tallied one goal in each period. Walker notched the first goal of the night and his third goal in as many games midway through the first period on the power play. San Antonio ended the period by killing off a 5-on-3 Wolves power play to head into the first intermission up 1-0. Derrick Pouliot added his first goal of the season in the second period, also on the power play. Walker added the exclamation point with an empty netter late in the third period.
With his performance tonight, Walker is currently tied for the AHL lead in scoring with five points -- four goals and an assist.
