ABOUT THE HOCKEY:

INDIANAPOLIS- The Fuel host the Iowa Heartlanders for their second game in a row and eighth matchup of the season. Indy sits in first place in the Central division while Iowa sits in last but have taken one win over the Fuel this year.

LAST TIME OUT

The last time these two teams met was Wednesday night in Iowa where the Fuel came away with a 4-1 win despite no score in the first period and Indy not scoring a goal until the third. Andrew Perrott scores his second goal in two games to open the floodgates for Indy three minutes into the period. Carson Rose, Chad Yetman and Alex Wideman tacked on additional goals to secure the Fuel’s thirtieth win of the season.

BACK IN BLACK

Because it is past the halfway point in the season, all teams have swapped to wearing their dark jerseys at home which is good news for the Fuel. Indy has found success this year in their black jerseys, specifically goaltender Mitchell Weeks who is expected to start against Iowa tonight. Weeks is 8-0 this season while wearing black. Additionally, Luc Brown has points in seven of his nine games wearing a black jersey. Cam Hillis is averaging over two points per game in his last six games in black. 

WIDEMAN WINS

Forward Alex Wideman leads the team in scoring against the Heartlanders. He has at least one point in all seven meetings between the two teams totaling three goals and six assists. Wideman leads the Fuel in scoring as a whole too, with 49 points in 46 games.
