Walleye fall to Wheeling 3-0


WHEELING, W. Va. — Usu­ally a shut­out streak is some­thing fun to be a part of.

Not so for the Toledo Wall­eye.

After not scor­ing in a third consec­u­tive con­test, a 3-0 road loss at Wheel­ing.

Despite put­ting 39 shots on the Nail­ers’ Mathieu Cor­beil, Toledo (5-9-2) could not find the back of the net again.

The Wall­eye have not scored a goal since Trevor Parkes scored in the third pe­riod on Nov. 23 in a 6-2 home win over Evans­ville, ex­tend­ing the Wall­eye’s shut­out skid at 190 min­utes, 30 sec­onds.

The loss is Toledo’s third in a row and sev­enth out of the last eight con­tests.

The team fin­ished 3-8-1 for the month of No­vem­ber af­ter start­ing the sea­son 2-1-1 in Oc­to­ber.

Rookie goaltender Jared Coreau finished with 26 stops for Toledo.

Max Nicastro and Louis-Marc Aubry each registered five shots for the Walleye.

Toledo was 0 for 6 on the power play as Wheeling was whistled for 11 penalties.

Ben Duffy, who was shipped from the American Hockey League’s Hamilton Bulldogs this past week, scored twice for the Atlantic Division-leader Nailers (11-5-2) in his second game with the team.

Anton Zlobin scored the first goal of the game while former Walleye forward Zack Torquato registered two assists for Wheeling.
