Kyle Bonis scored Toledo's fifth goal on a power play, walking in on Pat Nagle before going top shelf.
Now it's 6-3 Walleye. Nagle usually made the first save today but nobody helped him out.
Mike Embach was unable to beat Jeff Lerg five-hole on this breakaway.
Man, Toledo blocks a lot of shots. Komets need to do more of that, too.
Luciani has two goals on two shots.
Pat Nagle for the Komets and Jeff Lerg for the Walleye are starting in goal.
The Komets called up Eric Levine to back up Nagle, and on his way to get his physical yesterday, he got T-boned and totaled his car. Luckily, he didn't suffer a scratch on himself.
Matt Krug is playing today and Will Lacasse is the only Komets' scratch. James Martin is wearing an A to replace Matt Pistilli who got called up to Norfolk.
Be fascinating today to see what kind of defensive game the Komets try to play. Toledo is every bit as fast as Fort Wayne.
