What Happened:

Matt Anderson found the net for the Walleye in the overtime loss. The defeat drops the Walleye to a 3-1 series disadvantage in the Western Conference Finals.

John Lethemon split the iron for the Walleye. Jacob Graves and Riley McCourt skated the blue line while Brandon Hawkins, Brady Gilmour and Alexandre Doucet led the Toledo attack.

Jack LaFontaine covered the crease for the host Mavericks. Ryan Jones and Nate Knoepke manned the defense while Patrick Curry, Nolan Walker and Cade Borchardt filled out the Kansa City front.

A pair of back-and-forth periods between the Walleye and the Mavericks sent the two teams into the third period with a scoreless tie and Toledo outshooting Kansas City 22-17 after 40 minutes.

The Walleye lit the lamp first at 13:06 when Matt Anderson finally broke the deadlock with a score. Hawkins and Doucet added assists to the score.
