Third period comeback not enough in road loss to Wheeling

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA - Toledo scored first but four straight goals from Wheeling ended Toledo’s quest for three wins in a row in a 4-3 final at Wheeling.

Brandon Hawkins started the scoring with his fourth goal of the season at 10:29 of the first period. The power play goal pushed the Walleye to a 1-0 lead that they held until the 18:23 mark of the frame when Wheeling tied the game. The Nailers took the lead just 21 seconds later on a wrist shot from Cedric Desruisseaux.

The Nailers built on their lead with a pair of goals in the second period to lead the game 4-1 as they outshot the Walleye 11-1 in the frame. Toledo’s Joseph Nardi had a goal that was waived off around the 11-minute mark of the period.

The Walleye closed the gap when Thomas Ebbing (5th) netted a power play goal at 5:55 of the third. Tommy Parran blasted a shot from the blue line that found its way into the net at 10:58 of the third to give the Walleye a chance to catch Wheeling. Toledo outshot the Nailers in the third period.
