Fort Wayne, Indiana – Josh Dickinson in the game as TJ Hensic scored two goals in regulation, Billy Christ Pros saved the season’s best 34, and Toledo Walleye defeated Fort Wayne Comets in his first overtime win of the year. The winner saved this day.

Walleye’s Thanksgiving victory at Fort Wayne marked Fish’s fourth victory in the last five games. Toledo jumped over Comets in the Central Division’s standings and dominated the division’s lead with a 9-5-0 record.

Fort Wayne got off to a quick start, scoring a goal in just 48 seconds of the contest. Corbyn Baldwin and Nick Germain helped Will Graber with the goal of giving Comets a 1-0 lead. Butrus Ghafari got a slash penalty at the 3:46 mark, left Walleye in a short hand for two minutes, and then Fish got the first penalty kill in the game.

Matt Murphy entered the penalty box with a tripping at 6:11, and Hensic 30 seconds later evened the score with his tenth goal of the season, the Power Play goal. With Randy Gazola and Dickinson assisting, Dickinson extended the point streak to five games.

Fort Wayne’s Baldwin was asked to hold the stick at 9:53 and Toledo’s Austin McKill Murray received a significant penalty at 18:44, but neither team took advantage of the man’s advantage and scored. I drew one by one and headed for the first break. Walleye pollock beat Comets 10-6 in the first frame.

Alaska pollack and Comets played an almost quiet second period until 13:39, when Fort Wayne’s Keren Jones and Toledo’s Cole Fraser were each penalized for a 4-4 hockey game. Only 10 seconds later, Hensic achieved the game’s second goal to give Walleye the first lead. Hensic is currently leading ECHL with goals (11) and points (23). As with the first goal, Gazola and Dickinson won the assist.

At 14:15, Dickinson entered Slash’s penalty box with three skaters to leave Walleye to four of Comets. Jones and Fraser returned to the ice at 15:39, and Toledo succeeded in a penalty kill at 16:15, returning Walleye to full power.

With 1:24 remaining in the second period, Tyler Bush received a rough double minor and Ghaffari received a two-minute rough penalty. The penalty gave Toledo an advantage for the rest of the time, with Walleye entering the final frame with a 2-1 lead.

Toledo and Fort Wayne played a clean third period and neither team took a penalty in the last 20 minutes of regulation. Fort Wayne scored a goal to conclude the game at 6:52 with eight shots in Toledo’s five shots. Tyler Bush scored a goal of equal strength with the assistance of Graber and Marcus McIver. Toledo failed to score in the last 13 minutes and sent the fish to overtime for the first time this season.

Both teams gained multiple scoring opportunities in a 7-minute extra time and controlled both sides of the ice during the period. In the end, Toledo scored a sudden death goal with only 8.6 seconds left, preventing shootouts and giving Walleye a 3-2 victory. Dickinson scored a winning goal with Matt Berry’s assistance and extended the goal to five games. Dickinson has nine goals this season.

Toledo lost to Comets 36-27, but Walleye took advantage of the opportunity as two of Fish’s three goals came at a disadvantage to the shoot. Alaska pollack scored the only second period goal, despite shooting nine shots at Comets’ 16th. The goal won in Toledo’s game was an extra time in which Fort Wayne beat Alaska pollack 6-3. Both teams had three opportunities for Toledo to take advantage of the man, scoring the only power play goal in the first period.

Cristopros recorded the best 34 saves of the season and achieved three consecutive victories on Toledo’s net. He has a record of 5-2-0 this season. Samuel Harvey picked up the first defeat of the Comets season and saved 24 out of 27 shots at 66:51 minutes.

Next Steps: Walleye will return to the Huntington Center on Friday night to participate in the first three-game homestand contest. I will challenge the indiffusion for the third time this season. The pack drop is set at 7:15 pm in Toledo.

3 stars: 1. Toledo – Josh Dickinson (game winning goal, two assists). 2. Fort Wayne – Will Graver (goal, assist); 3. Toledo – TJ Hensic (2 goals).
