LAST TIME OUT

In the final game of a three-game series between the Indy Fuel and Tulsa Oilers, the Fuel entered looking for their sixth straight win. Indy had won the previous two matchups prior to Saturday night while Tulsa was looking to snap their losing streak. Indy would see goals from Willie Raskob, Nic Pierog and Antoine Waked before Joe Sullivan would bury the empty netter to give Indy a 4-2 win. 

PIEROG’S POINTS

Scoring the game-tying goal on Saturday night, Nic Pierog picked up his first points since Wednesday night. Coming into Saturday night, Pierog trailed Alex Rauter in points but tallying a goal and an assist put him tied for the league lead in goals with seven. 

ATTACKING ALEX

Coming into Sunday’s game, Alex Rauter has a point in his last three contests (1g, 2a). Leading the team in assists, Rauter has registered four assists in his last five games entering Sunday night. No stranger to scoring on the road, the third-year pro has two goals and five assists when playing away from Indiana Farmers Coliseum.
