Ice Demons top Rampage in Kitimat

The road is proving to be a lonely ride for the Prince Rupert Rampage as the CIHL squad dropped yet another road game this time to the Kitimat Ice Demons by a score of 4-2.

The loss marks the seventh road loss of the year on eight road games so far, part of a season which saw the Rampage spend a good portion of the early season travelling the highways of the CIHL.

Friday night's loss saw the Rampage fall behind in the first period as Kitimat scored two unanswered goals before Prince Rupert could count their first marker of the night, a short handed unassisted goal by Devin Palmer at 13:10 of the first.

Kitimat added two more goals in the second period, taking a 4-1 lead, a score which held until Tyler Ostrom scored the final goal of the night for the Rampage, an unassisted score at 14:53 of the third.

Compared to some recent contests for the Rampage, Friday night was a rather calm affair, with only 10 Rampage infractions for a total of 28 minutes, most of that accumulated by Justin Fontaine in a second period on ice incident. Kitimat had but 10 minutes of penalties on five infractions through the game.

Keano Wilson held the fort down through the night for the Rampage, facing 56 shots through the sixty minutes of play, the Rampage countered with 27 shots on Brett Vilness in the Ice Demon net, two of which found their way into the twine.

The CIHL now takes a break for Christmas with no games scheduled for this upcoming weekend, the Rampage next see action on Saturday, December 29th when the Terrace River Kings return to town.

Prince Rupert has five games remaining in the 2012-13 CIHL season, all but one of them at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.
