GAME PREVIEW: The Gulls Continue on Road Trip in Texas to Face the San Antonio Rampage Tonight (5:30p.m.)

The Gulls are coming off of a tough 6-1 loss last night vs. the Texas Stars as they look to bounce back on their Texas Road Trip, tonight, when they take on the San Antonio Rampage for the first of two consecutive games.

San Diego and San Antonio matched up earlier this season, a contest on Nov. 3 at Valley View Casino Center.

In that meeting, Gulls forward Nick Ritchie opened scoring on a power play opportunity at 8:42 of the first frame.

Defenseman Shea Theodore stretched the Gulls’ lead to 2-0 by netting a goal in the second period.

The Rampage tied up the game in the third period with a goal by Michael Schumacher one minute and 44 seconds into the frame followed with a goal by left wing Andreas Martinsen just four minutes and 19 seconds later.

Neither team could seal the deal in regulation, forcing the contest into 3-on-3 overtime. With just 1:16 remaining in extra time, Nick Ritchie netted his second of the game to lift the Gulls over the Rampage, 3-2.

The Gulls and Rampage will meet five more times in the regular season (including tonight). Three of these contests will be held at AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX, and two will be at Valley View Casino Center.
