Ryan White tallied twice as the Manitoba Moose (34-28-4-2) edged the San Antonio Rampage (27-35-6-1) by a 2-1 score Friday evening at AT&T Center. The hosts opened the scoring 10:42 into the contest as a centering feed bounced off a sliding Moose defender, and straight to Klim Kostin who promptly scored. Logan Shaw had the best chance in the period for Manitoba as Mason Appleton found Shaw in the slot for a hard shot, but Jared Coreau came up with the stop. Following the chance, a lengthy scrum behind the Rampage net saw San Antonio forward Jordan Nolan assessed a five-minute major during the altercation. Most of the penalty carried to the second period with the Moose trailing 1-0.
The Moose weren’t able to strike on their power play opportunity, but tied the game moments after it ended. Jansen Harkins snagged a rebound and moved the puck across the slot to Ryan White who picked a corner to tie the game at 4:54 of the period. Manitoba added to the lead with 8:45 to go in the frame as White potted his second of the game by putting away a Hunter Fejes setup. San Antonio nearly evened the game late in the period, but Mikhail Berdin went post-to-post and made a pad save to keep the Moose in front 2-1 heading to the third.
The third period saw Berdin steal the show. With San Antonio pressing throughout much of the frame, Berdin made 15 saves in the final stanza to hold the Rampage back. Backstopped by their rookie netminder in the third, the Moose held on for the 2-1 victory.
