Joey Martin, Terry Broadhurst, and Willie Coetzee also scored for Toledo (16-10-1), which increased its first-place lead in the ECHL North Division to three points.

Walleye goalie Jordan Pearce made two solid saves over the first four minutes of the third period to keep it tied. He finished with 18 stops.

Campbell simply put a shot on net and somehow it got by Florida goalie John Muse to the delight of an announced crowd of 5,008 at the Huntington Center.

Coetzee added an insurance goal with 7:08 left.

The Walleye scored first on a beautiful passing play from Coetzee to Kyle Rogers who tapped it up to Martin, who put it in to make it 1-0 with 12:21 left in first.

In the second period, Broadhurst scored on assists from Luke Glendening and Andrej Nestrasil, who is on an eight game scoring streak.
