Gwinnett ruin Walleye milestone

A rough start against Gwinnett took some luster off a milestone record established by the Toledo Walleye franchise yesterday.

A capacity crowd of 8,200 saw the Walleye dumped 6-4 by the Gladiators. The standing-room-only crowd set an all-time single season attendance record for a Toledo pro hockey team.

After Gwinnett scored its fourth goal on its 11th shot, Walleye coach Nick Vitucci pulled goalie Jordan Pearce in favor of Alec Richards. The Gladiators took a 4-0 lead 39 seconds into the second period.

The Walleye trailed 5-0 early in the second, before goals by Chris Zarb and J.C. Sawyer pulled them within three. Scooter Smith tallied two third-period goals but the Gladiators had built a big enough cushion.
