Toledo Takes a 4-3 Shootout Loss to Komets

Posted: Updated:

Jared Coreau made a season high 50 saves but Toledo fell 4-3 in a shootout at Fort Wayne Saturday night. Toledo has an overall record of 21-43-4-3 and is 10-21-3-2 on the road.

 

The Walleye would grab the game's first goal when Brett Perlini slapped a wrist shot in for his 10th goal of the season at 15:32. The Komets would tie the game just 33 seconds later when Brandon Marino slipped a shot past Jared Coreau.

 

"The game plan tonight was to make them play defense," said Head Coach Dan Watson. "They had us running around in our zone last Sunday and we wanted to turn the tables a bit. We did a good job of that for most of the night; we just didn't make the plays to finish in the shootout."

 

The Komets would take the lead at 1:57 of the second period when Simon Danis-Pepin sent a blue line shot that snuck through Coreau. Toledo would mount its comeback after the Komets took a 3-1 lead early in the third period. Max Shalunov would score 4:00 minutes into the third period and then again at 19:43 to pull Toledo even at 3. Shalunov has a team leading 18 goals on the season.

 

Walleye Notes:  Goaltender Jared Coreau made 50 saves on 53 shots on goal. Coreau has a record of 1-12-3-3 on the season. Toledo finished the season 1-6-1-1 against the Komets.
