FUEL HEAD UP I69 FOR GAME 69 OF THE SEASON

INDIANAPOLIS - The Fuel head to Fort Wayne for game 69 of the regular season.

LAST TIME OUT

Just over a week ago, these two teams met in Fort Wayne in a back-and-forth affair.

In each period, the Komets would start the scoring but the Fuel would answer in that same period, leaving each one tied at the end of each 20 minutes.

The game would carry into overtime tied at three and, just under two minutes into overtime, Seamus Malone would not only win the game for the Fuel but set the franchise record for most game-winning goals with 10.

FILLING BIG SKATES

The Fuel will be skating without Cam Hillis and Colin Bilek this weekend, two of their best top-line skaters and scorers.

Ryan Gagnier will be looked at to step up and command that top-line center role and role players like Cam Hausinger and Andrew Bellant will need to step up for the Fuel to pull away another win against the Komets this season.

AROUND THE DIVISION

The Toledo Walleye hold the lead in the division with 99 points and have locked up the number one seed in the Western Central Division. The Fuel hold second place with 81 points with Wheeling and Kalamazoo tied at 75 points in third place. The Komets have 72 points in fifth place. Finally, Cincinnati and Iowa bring up the bottom of the division with 66 and 60 points, respectively. Both of them have been eliminated from playoff contention.
