HAMILTON, ONTARIO – The Hamilton Bulldogs (22-22-1-4) will look to extend their current three-game point streak on Monday afternoon as they take on the San Antonio Rampage (21-21-3-5) at 1:00 p.m. at FirstOntario Centre.

Today’s game is the first time the Hamilton Bulldogs and San Antonio Rampage meet this season as well as the first of two match ups at FirstOntario Centre between these two teams within the next week. The Bulldogs have an all-time record of 11-5-0-0 against the Rampage, including a 1-1-0-0 mark last season.

In the midst of a 10-game road swing, the Rampage has rattled off four straight wins and has points in all five games so far on the trip (4-0-0-1). San Antonio is coming off back-to-back wins over the Grand Rapids Griffins on Friday and Saturday. The Rampage has collected at least a point in 10 straight contests (6-0-2-2).

The Bulldogs head into this one with points in three straight games, but they’re also winless in their past four home games. Hamilton will look to rebound from a 3-2 overtime loss to the Texas Stars at home on Saturday.
