RAPID CITY SHUTS OUT THE FUEL IN FIRST OF TWO MEETINGS

INDIANAPOLIS - In the first meeting between the Indy Fuel and Rapid City Rush this season, the Fuel would not put a goal on the board, eventually getting shutout by the Rush on Friday night. 

Dealing with a physical Rapid City team to start the game, Indy struggled to develop chances early. Although Indy would eventually outshoot the Rush 16-9 through 20 minutes they would go into the locker room trailing after Butrus Ghafari fired a wrist shot past Billy Christopoulos to earn the Rush a 1-0 lead.  

Doubling their lead six minutes into the second period, Peter Quenneville jumped on a rebound and jammed the puck past Christopoulos. Earning a 5-on-3 power play toward the middle of the period, Indy would struggle to build momentum and put shots on Rapid City’s net. With multiple point-blank chances throughout the period, the Fuel would not be able to beat Tendeck and go into the locker room down 2-0. 

The Fuel would have to kill off a short 5-on-3 to start the period before taking another penalty in which they’d give up two shots on Christopoulos. Indy would have a long 5-on-3 of their own but would only get one shot through the 1:41 man advantage. Rapid City would shut out the Fuel through the third period again and eventually take the 2-0 win on Friday night.
