Indy Fuel Pit Stop: Week 7

INDY FUEL WEEK 7 RESULTS: 2-0-1-0, 6-9-2-1 Overall

Wednesday, December 1 - Fuel 4 vs Fort Wayne 1:

In the second half of back-to-back matchups, the Fuel hosted the Fort Wayne Komets on Wednesday night. Holding on to a two-goal lead for the majority of the game, the Fuel would eventually take the 4-1 win over their in-state rivals. 

Saturday, December 4 - Fuel 4 at Cincinnati 0: 

Playing their first of back-to-back road games, Indy visited the Cincinnati Cyclones. In the fourth matchup of the season between the two teams, the Indy Fuel claimed victory over the Cincinnati Cyclones in a 4-0 shutout.

Sunday, December 5 - Fuel 2 at Wheeling 3 OT:

In the third and final game of the week, the Indy Fuel visited the Wheeling Nailers on Sunday afternoon. Scoring a late tying goal would not be enough as Indy would fall 3-2 in overtime to their division rival. 

INDY FUEL WEEK 8 SCHEDULE: 

Friday, December 10 - Fuel at Cincinnati (7:35 p.m. ET, Heritage Bank Center)

Sunday, December 12 - Fuel at Kalamazoo (3:00 p.m. ET, Wings Event Center)

CALL-UPS A PLENTY

In the past week, the Fuel have seen three of their top players called up to their AHL affiliate Rockford IceHogs. Losing their top-scoring forward Chad Yetman as well as one of their top defensemen Cliff Watson left the Fuel with 19 players on the active roster. Combine that with a call-up for goaltender Cale Morris, Indy’s numbers are low heading into Week 8.
