ABOUT THE HOCKEY:
INDIANAPOLIS- For the last regular season home game of the year, the Fuel host the Fort Wayne Komets to kick off a three-in-three weekend before playoffs begin. The Fuel are 7-2 against the Komets so far this season with two games remaining against them this weekend.
LAST TIME OUT

Indy struck first just 36 seconds into the game with a goal by Yetman, marking the quickest goal to begin a game for the Fuel this season.
