The morning after edition...
Jonathan Boutin stopped 35 of 40 shots faced before being pulled for the extra attacker which led to Toledo tacking on an empty net goal.

Brady Greco played a very chippy game with penalties that included a double minor for elbowing, fighting, instigation and high sticking.
