Game Preview: San Antonio Rampage at Amerks, 11/28/2012


Tonight marks the first of two meetings between the Amerks and the San Antonio Rampage. Last season the Amerks were 0-1-1-0 against the Rampage and 0-1-0-0 at home. The two teams are currently in much different situations, as the Rampage are 2-6-0-2 in their last 10 games while the Amerks are 5-4-1-0. It is also worth noting that the Rampage are currently on an 8 game losing streak (0-6-0-2). After the jump you’ll find some noteworthy statistics.

According to Kevin Oklobzija there are several Amerks who are injured. Obviously Corey Tropp is still injured, as is Cody Hodgson. Reportedly, Matt MacKenzie is also injured as is Zemgus Girgensons. Needless to say, the Amerks are a little beat up right now. The Rampage are a team that the Amerks should earn two points in regulation against, regardless of these injuries. 

I’ll be in my usual seat (Section 114, Row G, Seat 13), so feel free to stop by and have an awkward conversation. Either that or creep me from afar, whichever you prefer.

Tonight’s game song is “Sell Your Body (To The Night” by Turbonegro.
