March 16, 2019

The Iowa Wild scored five power-play goals to hand the San Antonio Rampage a 6-3 loss on Friday at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.

The Rampage dropped to 27-30-6 with their fourth consecutive loss. The Wild are 33-18-12.

Iowa’s five power-play goals came on eight chances and marked the most power-play tallies San Antonio has allowed in a match this season.

Joey LaLeggia and Trevor Smith scored for San Antonio in the first to answer one power-play tally by Iowa. The Wild then poured in three power-play goals in the second before Mitch Reinke scored for the Rampage to make the margin 4-3 entering the final period.

Iowa netted an insurance goal with about six minutes remaining and added another on a power play 90 seconds later.

Ville Husso made 13 saves against 17 shots for San Antonio before leaving because of an injury. Jared Coreau stepped in and made seven saves against nine shots.

LaLeggia and Chris Butler earned two assists apiece for San Antonio. Sam Anas had two goals and two assists for Iowa, while Gerald Mayhew had two goals and Brennan Menell tallied five assists.

San Antonio travels to face the Chicago Wolves at 7 p.m. Saturday.
