INDIANAPOLIS - in the third and final game of the week, the Fuel hosted the Fort Wayne Komets for Marvel Super Hero Night. After both teams traded goals throughout, a late goal from the Komets would hand them a 3-2 win on Saturday night.
After an aggressive start to the game, the Fuel would outshoot the Komets 6-2 through the first 10 minutes of the game. Taking the lead late in the first period, Will Graber deflected a shot from the blue line that bounced past Cale Morris. The Komets would hold off the Fuel for the remaining minutes to take a one-goal lead into the locker room.
Fort Wayne would double their lead early in the second period when a slapshot by Tyler Busch trickled through the five hole of Cale Morris. Indy would respond six minutes into the second period when Spencer Watson deflected a slap shot by Chris Cameron past Samuel Harvey.
The Komets looked to have taken their second two goal lead of the game early in the third period but after a review referee Trevor Wohlford disallowed the goal due to goaltender interference. Earning a power play midway through the period, Mike Lee tied the game when he fired a slap shot from the point and beat a screened Harvey. Capitalizing on a power play of their own, the Komets stole the lead when Matt Murphy jumped on a rebound and chipped it over a sprawling Cale Morris.
