The line of Chris Auger, Scott Fleming, and Brandon Marino combined on the first three Fort Wayne goals, each line member scoring once and Fleming assisting on the two goals he didn't score.

Toledo managed to erase an early 1-0 deficit and took leads of 2-1 and 3-2 before Marino tied it late in the second period, and Miller put the K's ahead in the third.
