With just two Florida Panthers heading to Sochi for the Winter Olympics, Panthers’ fans will have to look to the San Antonio Rampage to cheer for their own.
However, those who call the San Antonio area home will have a hard time finding their team as the Rampage will not play a single home game for the entire month of February.
Don’t worry you didn’t read that wrong – the Rampage plays all ten games this month on the road. The month starts off tomorrow against the Toronto Marlies and will see them travel to Lake Erie, Grand Rapids, Hamilton, and Rochester wrapping it up in Utica.
Talk about building up some frequent flyer (I’m sure bus for most) miles this month. According to the team’s site, the trip will cover 5,707 miles and will include a quick break for the AHL All Star Classic.
Here’s a full rundown of their schedule for the month,
|5-Feb||at Toronto Marlies|
|7-Feb||at Lake Erie Monsters|
|8-Feb||at Lake Erie Monsters|
|14-Feb||at Grand Rapids Griffins|
|15-Feb||at Grand Rapids Griffins|
|17-Feb||at Hamilton Bulldogs|
|21-Feb||at Rochester Americans|
|22-Feb||at Toronto Marlies|
|23-Feb||at Hamilton Bulldogs|
|26-Feb||at Utica Comets|
What are your thoughts on the schedule? Is it something you have ever seen before? I can’t recall a team not playing a single home game in an entire month. It will be interesting to keep an eye on the team’s record throughout the month.
