Walleye Notes

Overtime for the wins: After starting its week with a loss in Cincinnati, Toledo rebounded with a pair of overtime wins. The first came on Thanksgiving night in Fort Wayne, when Josh Dickinson sent the Walleye back to Toledo with a goal with only 8.6 seconds left in the seven minute extra period. Friday night, it was defenseman Randy Gazzola netting his first goal of the season at 2:33 of overtime to give Toledo the victory. The two overtime games were the first times this season that the Walleye have played in overtime.

Top fish still: Toledo currently has three of the top five scorers in the ECHL with TJ Hensick leading the way at 25 points (12G, 13A). Forwards Matt Berry (9G, 15A) who is currently with Grand Rapids in the AHL and Josh Dickinson (9G, 12A) rank third and fifth respectively. Hensick also leads the league with his twelve goals.

Attendance heats up: The Walleye picked up its third sellout on the year Friday night with 7,881 inside the Huntington Center. Through seven home games, Toledo tops the ECHL in average attendance with 6,966 per contest and has posted standing room only crowds in two of the last three home games.

Home cooking: Since starting the home slate 1-2-0 in its first three contests, the Walleye have won four straight on home ice. During that stretch, Toledo has outscored its opponents 25-9.

Two weekend games ahead: Toledo has a pair of home games on tap for this week starting with a Saturday night tilt against Wheeling. The Nailers dealt the Walleye a 3-2 loss at the Huntington Center on November 12. On Sunday Cincinnati will be in Toledo for the first time this season. Toledo lost the first matchup this year with the Cyclones 9-2 down in Cincinnati last Wednesday.
