For the second night in a row, the K-Wings allowed three Walleye goals in the 3rd period. Unfortunately, they also allowed three Toledo goals in the first two periods. If there's a silver lining it's that after 12 games into his sophomore pro season, Bolt Prospect Brian Hart hit the scoresheet for the first time this season, scoring about mid-way through the 3rd period. Hart's power-play marker closed the gap to 3-2 with a half of a period to play before the wheels fell off for netminder Joel Martin and the Kalamazoo defense. Toledo scored three times in a span of 2:28, including two 49 seconds apart. The K-Wings conclude their 5-game road trip next week with back-to-back games Wednesday and Thursday nights against Indy and Fort Wayne, before returning home for a Friday night tilt against Brian Hart's former team, the Swamp Rats from Greenville.
