Walleye defeats Indy 3-2 in double OT

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - After double overtime, the Toledo Walleye came out on top and beat the Indy Fuel 3-2 Thursday night for a sweep in the series.

Even though the fish had a 3-0 lead in the first round playoff series, the toughest thing to do in hockey is to beat a desperate team on their home ice.

Halfway through a second overtime Kyle Bonis sets up Christian Hillbrich to score the game winning goal.

Hilbrich has scored five goals in four games in the first round of the Kelly Cup playoffs.

Walleye goaltender Pat Nagle also made 43 saves in the Walleye victory over Indy.

Coach Dan Watson says the Walleye will take what they learned from playing the Fuel, both good and bad, to their next series.

The Walleye now advances to the second round. They will play the winner of the Fort Wayne and Cincinnati series.

Due to the Walleye's sweep, they will have a nice break to recuperate.
