The Toledo Walleye are East Coast Hockey League Western Conference Champions and are headed to the Kelly Cup Finals for the first time in the team's 10-year history.
“The Fish” defeated the Tulsa Oilers 6-2 on the road, Wednesday night, with a crowd of more than 1,500 cheering them on in Toledo at Fifth Third Field.
This is the first time Toledo will play in the ECHL playoff finals since 1994 when the Toledo Storm captured back-to-back Riley Cup titles.
The Walleye are only four wins away from completing their quest of bringing a championship back to the Glass City. Toledo now faces the Eastern Conference champions Newfoundland Growlers. The two teams did not play each other this season.
