The Toledo Walleye erupted for four goals in the second period tonight to break a four-game losing streak.

Toledo trailed Evansville 1-0 after one period before a sellout crowd at the Huntington Center. But the Walleye exploded in the second period and skated away with a 6-2 victory.

Walleye defensemen C.J. Chartrain and Joe Sova scored to overcome the one-goal deficit. And then forwards Kevin Lynch and Trevor Parkes scored just 27 seconds apart as Toledo seized a 4-2 lead late in the middle period.

Louis-Marc Aubry gave the Walleye some insurance with his first goal in a Toledo uniform with 11:12 left in the game. Just 42 seconds later Parkes scored his second of the night for a 6-2 cushion.

Walleye goalie Jared Coreau earned his first win as a professional and finished with 42 saves.

Toledo was without captain Kyle Rogers, who is out with a lower body injury. Rogers' absence is significant because he had played in 225 straight games in a Walleye uniform without missing a start.

Evansville (8-2-3) lost for just the second time this season and outshot the Walleye 44-36.

Nine Walleye players recorded points and four had multiple points.

Toledo (5-6-2) has two home games against South Carolina this week. The Walleye host the Stingrays on Wednesday and Friday.
