BOX SCORE

TOLEDO, OH – The Kalamazoo Wings (17-19-3-0), proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets, held their ground early against the Toledo Walleye (22-14-4-1) but the game fell out of reach in the middle frame Saturday, ultimately falling at Huntington Center, 6-0.

Toledo notched the first goal of the game at the 5:53 mark of the first and scored again at the 10:50 mark. Kalamazoo battled hard, skating to a 9-9 draw in shots in the opening frame, but trailed 2-0 at intermission.

The Walleye scored on both of their power play opportunities in the second period, once at the 7:13 and again at the 16:57 mark, and added an even-strength tally between the two at 13:23 mark to make it 5-0. Another power play goal was scored at the 6:45 mark of the third, wrapping up the scoring in the contest.

Justin Taylor and Matheson Iacopelli led the K-Wings with four shots, and. Evan Cormier (5-13-2-0) made 26 saves in the loss.
