INDIANAPOLIS: The Indy Fuel will first travel to Kalamazoo then host them Saturday in a division clash to get some more points. The Kalamazoo Wings are looking for points to either tie or pass up the Quad City Mallards for third in the division.
The Fuel will look to get back in the win column this weekend against very talented teams. The Fuel have lost two in a row and are looking to get back in the win column Friday against a tough team in the Wings.
The Fuel will be on the road against the Wings who get at least 33 shots on goal a game. The Fuel are going to be in for a tough one when they give up at least 35-40 shots on goal. The Fuel are going to need to be mentally sharp this game.
Then after the travel to Kalamazoo the Fuel will host the Kalamazoo Wings and the Quad City Mallards. The Fuel are playing spoiler at this point because they are mathematically out of the playoffs.
The Wings are looking for two points to tie the Mallards, or four points the take over third place in the division. There is a lot riding on these games for the other teams and the Fuel would like nothing more then to be the team that made it difficult.
The Fuel last weekend surprised me beating the Fort Wayne Komets in a game they played with grit and heart. I do think the Fuel can get at least two games and be a good spoiler team. Whatever team comes to the Coliseum better be careful the Fuel are going to be fierce.
Quad City will also visit the Fuel this weekend and they are looking for points to stay in third. With everyone wanting points the games this weekend are huge for all three teams. The Fuel want to end this week on a high note after losing two last weekend.
The Fuel will need to come ready and fired up to play these teams who are hungry for points to help them get higher in the standings. I believe the Fuel could get both wins at home if they play like they did last Friday.
