KAPELMASTER SHUTOUT HANDS INDY WIN OVER CYCLONES

INDIANAPOLIS - Playing their first of four games during the week, the Indy Fuel hosted the Cincinnati Cyclones on Wednesday night. Thanks to goals from Riley McKay, Brycen Martin and Cliff Watson as well as a shutout from Justin Kapelmaster the Fuel would go on to win 3-0 on home ice. 

Although both teams both had a chance on the man-advantage to start the period, both Justin Kapelmaster and Michael Houser held their opponents off. Indy would get outshot by the Cyclones 16 to 7 throughout the remaining minutes but would eventually head to the locker room scoreless. 

After outshooting the Cyclones 16-3 to start the second stanza, the Fuel would be the first team to get the board. Picking up a loose puck in their own zone, Riley McKay streaked down the sideboards and fired a wrist shot that would deflect under the arm of Houser. The Fuel would continue to dominate the Cyclones throughout the period but eventually, head to the locker room leading by a goal.

The Fuel would outshoot the Cyclones 10-5 throughout the first half of the period but Cincinnati’s defense would hold them at bay. Defending a barrage of shots throughout the remaining minutes, Indy would double their lead when Brycen Martin tucked a wrist shot through the legs of Houser. 

Scoring the empty-net goal, Cliff Watson would tally his fifth goal of the season when he shot the puck from his own goal line, making the score 3-0. Kapelmaster would hold off the Cyclones in the remaining minutes, earning his third shutout of the season.
