Just like that, the IceHogs and their Blackhawks prospects have erased any concern over their 0-3-0-1 start.
Sunday's 3-1 win over the San Antonio Rampage was their fourth straight and after managing just five goals in the first four games, Rockford has now scored 15 in their last four games.
Ben Smith opened the scoring with his second goal of the season less than two minutes in, but the Rampage tied it with less than five minutes to play in the opening frame. That was all San Antonio could muster against IceHogs goalie Carter Hutton, who made 23 saves.
Martin St. Pierre's second goal of the season proved to be the game-winner and highly-touted defenseman Adam Clendening scored his first goal in the third period.
Smith added an assist, Jeremy Morin had a pair of assists and Brandon Pirri continues to produce with an assist on Smith's goal.
The IceHogs are off until Friday when they host the Chicago Wolves.
