DIVISIONAL BATTLE FRIDAY NIGHT IN FORT WAYNE

INDIANAPOLIS - The Fuel head to Fort Wayne for a crucial division matchup against the Komets to start Easter weekend.

LAST TIME OUT

It was a back-and-forth affair between these two teams on March 10.

Fort Wayne scored the first two of the game in the first period to lead 2-0, a lead that would hold after no scoring at all in the second period.

Things began to heat up in the third when the Fuel scored three straight goals in the first nine minutes of the period to take the lead 3-2. That lead would only hold for another four minutes when the Komets tied it up on the power play then would eventually take the lead with 4:30 left in the game.

The Komets would walk away 4-3 victors in this one.

WIN FOR WEEKS

The Fuel are 5-3-1 against the Komets so far this season. Zach Driscoll has loved playing Fort Wayne, not only for the goalie fights between him and Brochu but for the fact he’s a perfect 5-0 on the season against the Komets.

On the flip side, Mitchell Weeks is still searching for his first win against Fort Wayne this season. Weeks has seen two games on the road and two games at home against the Komets and all have been within one goal, outside of the season opener.

A win for Weeks would give him a boost of confidence going into the final stretch of games to end the regular season.

AROUND THE DIVISION

The Toledo Walleye hold the lead in the division with 91 points and have locked up the number one seed in the Western Central Division. The Fuel hold second place with 76 points with Wheeling right behind them in third with 73. The Komets and Wings are fighting for fourth place with 71 and 69 points, respectively. Finally, Cincinnati and Iowa bring up the bottom of the division with 62 and 60 points, respectively.
