LAST TIME OUT

In their first game of a three-game series, the Fuel visited the Kansas City Mavericks at Cable Dahmer Arena. The Fuel would take the early lead with a goal from Joe Sullivan, only to be tied by Adam Brady at the end of the first period. With neither team scoring for the remainder of regulation, the game would go to overtime where Matt Marcinew would score :19 seconds in to give the Fuel a 2-1 win.

MAGNIFICENT MATT

Scoring the overtime winner on Friday night, forward Matt Marcinew broke the Indy Fuel franchise record for overtime goals in a season. Previously held by Derian Plouffe in the 2019-20 season, Marcinew broke the record last night scoring his fourth overtime goal of the year. Going to overtime 11 times this season, the Fuel have seen Marcinew win the game four times, three of them coming at home. 

SULLY RETURNS

After missing five games due to suspension, forward Joe Sullivan returned to the Fuel lineup on Friday night. Just under nine minutes into the first period, Sullivan scored the Fuel’s first and only regulation goal thanks to a one-timer pass from Antoine Waked. Sullivan’s goal on Friday night was his first goal since February 14 at Wheeling.
