The San Antonio Rampage returned home for the first time since Nov. 15 and halted the Barons’ four-game winning streak with a 2-1 decision on Saturday at AT&T Center.
The Rampage (10-12-0-0) are 4-7-0-0 at home. Oklahoma City falls to 16-6-0-1 and 9-3-0-0 on the road in splitting a home-and-home series. The Barons beat the Rampage last night in Oklahoma City 1-0.
San Antonio scored the only goal of the first period as Michal Repik raced in from the blue line on a breakaway and back-handed a shot past David LeNeveu at 8:49. LeNeveu, starting back-to-back games for the first time this year, was called on for 15 first-period saves in seeing his personal three-game winning streak broken.
The Barons tied the score 1-1 on Tanner House’s second of the season at 13:30 of the second period as he put a rebound over a downed Dov Grumet-Morris, 3-0-0 since joining the Rampage last month.
San Antonio re-took the lead, however, with 17.1 seconds remaining in the second when a rebound trickled out of the trapezoid, preventing LeNeveu from playing the puck. Bill Thomas won a race to the puck and found Evan Barlow driving to the net to put the Rampage in front 2-1.
The third was scoreless. Oklahoma City out-shot San Antonio 27-24.
