Toledo on verge of historic turnaround

One season after totaling just 49 points, the Toledo Walleye lead the North Division with 96 points and are closing in on ECHL history.

Toledo's current 47-point turnaround is tied for the fifth-best improvement from the previous season in ECHL history with the Wheeling Nailers, who improved from 59 points in 2002-03 to 106 points in 2003-04. The Walleye need four points in their final seven games to set a new league record for the best turnaround. The current record of a 50-point improvement is shared by two teams: the Greenville Grrrowl went from 33 points in 2003-04 to 83 points in 2004-05 and the Knoxville Cherokees improved from 44 points in 1992-93 to 94 points in 1993-94.
