NOTES

Pregame:
 
- Marek Langhamer leads Tucson out of the tunnel for warm-ups. Langhamer will be making his fifth start of the season tonight. He enters the evening with a 2-1-1 mark, a .929 SV% and a 2.69 GAA. 
 
- The Roadrunners are in their white uniforms again tonight.
 
- Jamie McBain, after missing last night's game due to flu-like symptoms, is back in the lineup tonight, paired with Dakota Mermis on the team's second defensive unit. 
 
- Stefan Fournier and Mark Cooper are your scratches up front. Dysin Mayo is tonight's defensive scratch. 
 
- Jeremy Smith looks to be in net for San Antonio; he played the final two periods of Friday night's game.
 
First Period:
 
- Garret Ross, Mark Olver, and Tyler Gaudet get the start up front for the Roadrunners.
 
- On the opening shift, Garret Ross slaps home a rebound off of a Dakota Mermis shot for his first goal of the season. Ross' goal, 48 seconds in, is the fastest to start a game for Tucson this season. 
 
Second Period:
 
- San Antonio probably playing their most dominant period of this two-game series thus far.
 
- A.J. Greer finishes a two-on-one sequence to get the Rampage on the board. 
 
- Rampage zone time in Roadrunners' zone has been very, very consistent in the middle frame. 
 
- San Antonio capitalizes on their fourth power play of the evening, T.J. Compher giving the Rampage their first lead of the night. 
 
- The Roadrunners get outshot 18-6 by the Rampage in the second period.
 
Third Period:
 
- Tucson having trouble getting shots through. Only 2 shots on goal through the first eight minutes of the third.
 
- San Antonio shuts the door on the night with two more goals, including a shorthanded marker with just over eight minutes left to play. 
 
- Marek Langhamer pulled from the game following the Rampage's fourth goal of the evening; he stopped 30 of 34 shots faced. Justin Peters enters the game. 
 
- During the final minute of the game, Christian Fischer pots a juicy rebound off of a Kyle Wood point shot to give the Roadrunners their second goal of the evening. For Fischer, it was his fifth goal in three games.
