Walleye Notes

Two for two last weekend: The Walleye pushed its winning streak to four consecutive games overall with wins over Wheeling and Cincinnati at the Huntington Center. TJ Hensick scored in overtime Saturday night for the Walleye beat the Nailers 4-3. Marcus Vela’s two power play goals led Toledo to Sunday’s 4-3 win over Cincinnati.
