Monsters Stymied in San Antonio, 4-0

Cleveland caps season-long 15-day, seven-game trek with shutout loss to Rampage.

The Cleveland Monsters, proud American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets, were defeated by the San Antonio Rampage on Sunday at AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX by a final score of 4-0. With the loss, the Monsters fell to 21-33-5-3 overall this season and with a .403 points percentage, remain alone in seventh place in the AHL’s Central Division standings.

San Antonio’s A.J. Greer staked the Rampage to a 1-0 lead on Sunday when he struck for an even-strength goal at 8:52 of the opening period. In the second, the Rampage added a trio of power-play goals, from Andrew Agozzino at 6:33, Alex Belzile at 7:29, and Michael Joly at 18:48, to take a 4-0 edge into the final period of play, a score that would lead to a Rampage win by the very same count in the wake of a scoreless third frame.
