January 24, 2018 - ECHL (ECHL) - Toledo Walleye News Release

Machovsky shutout highlight's week: The Walleye won just one game this weekend at Kansas City when goaltender Matej Machovsky stopped all 24 shots in a 3-0 Friday night win. It was his second shutout of the season. He did take the loss Sunday but currently is the ECHL's best in goals against average at 2.08.

Gibson bats 1.000: Friday night's win featured a three-goal effort from the Walleye all of which featured defenseman Kevin Gibson. He scored the first goal of the night (game-winner) and then assisted on each of the following goals.

Three is the key: Toledo has a record this year of 24-2-2-0 when they score three goals or more in a contest. That goes hand in hand with the defense as the Walleye hold a mark of 21-1-0-0 when they keep teams from reaching three goals.

Power outage: Toledo has struggled recently on the power play with only three goals in its last 38 power play opportunities (7.9%).

East and North and Home: Toledo will stay on the road heading to Reading, Pennsylvania for a Wednesday night tilt against the Royals.
