Rampage players go through their morning skate on Friday at the AT&T Center. arrived in San Antonio late Thursday night for a weekend of games to cover as the Rampage take on the Grand Rapids Griffins Friday night and the powerhouse that is Oklahoma City Barons (Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Justin Shultz, and so on and so on) Sunday afternoon.

Attending the morning skate Friday, head coach Chuck Weber put the team through a quick fast paced skate before sending the team off the ice. Heading into the game, San Antonio starts a four-game home stand in which they look to improve on their 2-4-0-1 record.

It's a battle of two different styles Friday night as the Rampage's focus is more on defense (netminder Dov Grumet-Morris has been great in four games of action, posting a 1.49 goals against average and .953 SV%) while the Griffins love to score at will (almost 3.5 goals a game in first seven). It will be interesting to see if it opens up or stays a low scoring game.

Spoke to a couple of players already for future stuff including former first rounder Quinton Howden who is adjusting in his first full pro season.
