2ND PERIOD EXPLOSION PROPELS CINCINNATI OVER INDY

CINCINNATI - Playing their second game in as many days, the Fuel visited the Cincinnati Cyclones at Heritage Bank Center. After a scoreless first period, the Cyclones jumped out to a four-goal lead in the second period and eventually went on to win 5-1 on Saturday night. 

Through the first 10 minutes of the game, both the Fuel and Cyclones each had three shots on the board but Angus Redmond and Mitch Gillam turned all of the shots aside. Indy would have a chance on the man-advantage but would only put one shot on Redmond and he made an easy stop. 

The Cyclones would be the first team to get on the board when Dajon Mingo fed Louie Caporusso a pass and he one-timed it past Gillam. Scoring their second goal of the game on an odd-man rush, Cincinnati’s Jesse Schultz tapped home a cross-ice pass from Zack Andrusiak to make it 2-0, Cyclones. 

Taking a 3-0 lead on the power play, Cincinnati’s Justin Vaive deflected a wrist shot from Jesse Schultz. Lincoln Griffin scored the Cyclone’s 4th goal of the game when he jumped on a loose puck behind Mitch Gillam and tapped it into an empty net. 

After earning another power play early in the third period, the Cyclones would take a 5-0 lead when Bair Gendunov found a puck in front of the Fuel net and wristed it past Gillam. Indy’s Spencer Watson would put home Indy’s first goal of the game with less than five minutes remaining when he tapped a back-door pass from Jared Thomas. Watson’s goal gave him sole possession of 2nd place on the Fuel’s all-time goals list.
