Indy Fuel Pit Stop: Week 24

INDY FUEL WEEK 24 RESULTS: 3-1-0-0, 30-31-2-3 Overall (6th Central)

Wednesday, March 30 - Fuel 3 vs Cincinnati 0:

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. 

Friday, April 1 Fuel 4 at Wheeling 3:

For the second time in a week, the Indy Fuel traveled to Wheeling, WV and left with the win. Just like Saturday, March 26 where Indy won 5-4 in overtime after Seamus Malone scored the game-winning goal, the Fuel came from behind Friday night to win it 4-3 after Malone once again scored in overtime.

Saturday, April 2 - Fuel 3 at Toledo 4:

In their second game in as many days and second town, the Fuel traveled to Toledo to face their Central Division opponent for the ninth time this season. Indy would trail twice in the game before eventually falling 4-3 on Saturday night. 

Sunday, March 3 - Fuel 6 vs Iowa 2:

Closing out four games in five nights, the Indy Fuel hosted the Iowa Heartlanders on Sunday night. Both teams would trade goals throughout the game until Indy exploded with four goals in the third period, earning them a 6-2 win.

Tuesday, April 5 - Fuel at Kalamazoo (7:00 p.m. ET, Wings Event Center)

Friday, April 8 Fuel vs Wheeling (7:00 p.m. ET, Indiana Farmers Coliseum)

30 GOAL SCORER

Picking up a goal in Indy’s 6-2 win over Iowa on Sunday, Spencer Watson tallied his 30th goal of the season. The fifth-year pro has tallied 30 goals in a season twice in his career, the last time coming in 2019-20 when he set the Fuel franchise record for goals in a season (31). On pace to break that record, Watson is only five goals away from tying the franchise record for all-time goals held by Josh Shalla. 

OFFENSIVE EXPLOSION

Playing four games during week 24, the Fuel outscored their opponents 16-9. Since becoming the Interim Head Coach, Duncan Dalmao has led the Fuel to a 7-4 record and has outscored their opponents 40-33. Dalmao’s power play has struggled since he took over the bench only scoring on 5-of-33, however, his penalty kill has been stellar, killing off 85.7% of their penalties.
