Pat Nagle made 23 saves and the host Toledo Walleye (2-1-0) scored three times in the first period on the way to shutting out the Quad City Mallards (1-3-0) 3-0 Saturday night.
Kevin Tansey scored the first goal from the high slot 91 seconds into the game. The Walleye were on the power play when Simon Denis pounced on a rebound at 17:45 of the opening period. A.J. Jenks completed Toledo's first period outburst by finishing off a shorthanded 3-on-2 with just 2.2 seconds left on the clock.
Nagle was at his busiest while stopping 11 second period shots on a night that featured a pair of strong goaltending performances. Mallard netminder Ivan Kulbakov made 37 saves.
