Walleye rookie Andy Bohmbach scored with 1:28 remaining in the third period to tie the score at 3-all to help send the game into overtime.
Bohmbach created a turnover at the Kalamazoo blueline before making a strong individual effort to beat Wings' goalie Riley Gill for the goal.

"You are going to be successful if our power play and goaltending remains strong."
