INDIANAPOLIS: The Indy Fuel will host the Fort Wayne Komets Friday, and Saturday and Host the Allen Americans Sunday. It is the same thing every week when the Fuel play. They need to have a tight defense and not have pointless penalties or turnovers.
The Fuel play Friday against the Komets in what will be their 100th hockey game. I am hoping on the special weekend the Fuel they can find a way to get into the win column.
With the Fuel not being in the win column as of late and them needing some wins they need to get it together. With the playoffs no longer in the sights for the Fuel the only thing they can do now is play wins or just play spoiler.
With the Komets and Americans coming into town this weekend the challenge will be a good one. The Komets and Americans always seem to give the Fuel a hard time.
With the Komets and Americans in the playoffs race in their divisions they are looking for more points and they will be going into the Farmers Coliseum ready to win.
The Fuel need to give up less than 20 shots a period on goal and they need to shoot the puck on goal more, getting 9-15 shots on a goal in a period is not ideal right now for the Fuel.
The Fuel are also giving up at least 30-50 shots a game which is outrageous with all the talent this team has. The game against Quad City the Fuel gave up 42 shots on goal, 15 shots coming in period one.
The Fuel need Travis Armstrong, Zach Miskovic, and Adam Phillips to play strong and get some points. The defense as a whole needs to play stronger and get assists or some goals.
When I attend the games the team always starts slow with no energy or hits. The crowd or an early fight always gets them ramped up but sometimes its too late.
The Fuel have good talent in the Forwards, Defense, and Goalies but it is just not clicking. I do not know if it’s the coaching, or the guys are not getting along but it just needs a change.
I really do hope the Fuel can at least get two wins this weekend the fans and the team deserve it. The fans are very loyal and they want the Fuel to come out with some wins.
If the Fuel do not win this weekend the front office needs to change what is going on. This weekend will be a good test for the Fuel to see if they can get their act together.
