Three straight in Idaho: Toledo spent the last week out in Boise, taking on the Steelheads in Idaho for the first time ever. Wednesday night, a pair of early third period goals from the Steelheads pushed Toledo to a 4-2 loss. Toledo collected its lone point of the week Friday when AJ Jenks and Hunter Smith each scored for the Walleye to come back from a 3-1 deficit and send the game to overtime. Idaho took the contest in a shootout. Saturday's game went back and forth until the Steelheads pulled away late in 5-3 Walleye defeat.
