Mantas Armalis recorded 29 saves and Timo Meier scored two goals as the San Jose Barracuda shut out the San Antonio Rampage on Sunday night in a 4-0 road win.

Armalis, the rookie goaltender, moves to 5-1-0-1 in his AHL career after his first shutout.

The Barracuda score two late goals in the first period to take control of the game. Tim Heed fired a one-timer past Rampage goaltender Spencer Martin and Timo Meier scored on a wrist shot minutes later. Both were power play goals that gave San Jose a 2-0 lead heading into the second period.

Meier netted his second goal of the game in the second period, taking a feed from Kevin Labanc and whistling a one-timer into the net from the right side.

John McCarthy added a goal midway through the third period to close out matters.

The Barracuda stopped all four of the Rampage’s power plays. They put 33 shots on goal on Martin, who lost his first career game to San Jose.

After falling in a shootout to the Rampage last night, the Barracuda walk away from San Antonio with a loss and a win. They have a few days off before playing Stockton at home on Thursday.
