Looking Back: Tyler Barnes picked up four points (1G, 3A) and Jeff Lerg made 25 saves to lead Toledo to a 4-0 win Friday night at Indy.
Never Say Never Again: With the win last night, Toledo has a record of 7-0-0 in games following a regulation, overtime or shootout loss this season.
Away From Home No Worries: The Walleye own an outstanding 10-2-0 record away from home this season. The most road wins a Walleye team has had in a season is 19 set by the 2012-13 team (19-14-3). Last season, Toledo won just 10 games all year on the road.
In Barnes We Trust: Tyler Barnes set a new personal high with four points last night to give him a Walleye leading 31 points (12G, 19A) on the season. The first year forward leads all rookies in scoring and is third among all ECHL players.
Schwab Singing: Troy Schwab has six points (2G, 4A) over his last six contests.
The Early Strike is Key: The Walleye have a record of 16-0-1 when they get the first goal this season and are 12-0-0 when leading after one period.

Looking at the Kwings: Kalamazoo has dropped back to back games including 5-4 last night at home to Fort Wayne. The Wings are 3-7-0 over the last ten and 4-7-1-1 at home.
