"We have had our struggles in the third, and it cost us once again," said Wolves coach Craig MacTavish. "We need to correct this trend in a hurry."
The Wolves (30-21-2-3) held a 1-0 lead entering the third period, but San Antonio (31-23-2-1) scored twice in a 4:26 span to grab the victory. The Rampage tied the score at 1-1 while on the power play at 3:45 of the final period.
The Rampage grabbed the game-winner at 8:11 when center Scott Timmins won a puck battle behind the Wolves net and sent the puck around to the near post, where defenseman Nolan Yonkman flicked a wrister that sneaked through the legs of goalie Eddie Lack, who stopped 30 shots.
