AHL Playoffs – Toronto Marlies vs. San Antonio Rampage – Game 4

SAN ANTONIO — The Toronto Marlies enacted their revenge on the San Antonio Rampage tonight at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, skating away with a 3 – 2 victory to even the round one Calder Cup playoff series at two games each.

It could be said that Toronto did not win this game as much as San Antonio lost it. Toronto’s first goal came when San Antonio player Keith Yandle knocked the puck into his own net after a rebound from Rampage goalie Josh Tordjman slipped out in front of Yandle’s stick, and the puck slipped past the unsuspecting netminder.

Toronto managed to stay one step ahead of the Rampage after the first goal, although San Antonio did their best to close the gap. The Marlies scored an empty-net goal late in the third after San Antonio had pulled netminder Tordjman in an attempt to tie the game. The Rampage were able to score a goal with eight seconds left on the clock, only to lose the game 3 – 2 after they were unable to put the puck past Marlies goalie Scott Clemmensen for what would have been a game-tying goal in the final seconds.
