Fuel weekly preview: Feb. 23-28

Home sweet home – briefly. After their longest roadtrip of the year, the Indy Fuel return to the Indiana Farmers Coliseum Tuesday night to face the team with the ECHL’s best record, then head back to the road this weekend for two games in the Buckeye State. That will conclude a February where the Fuel have spent much of their time on the road, and prelude a March that will see Indy play nearly all of its games in the friendly confines of the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

Record: 26-26-2, 3rd/5 Midwest Division, t8th/14 Western Conference

Toledo (9) is the leader. … Sunday’s game at Toledo will end a string of 10 straight Fuel games against Cincinnati, Missouri and Orlando. … Seven of the Fuel’s 17 games against Eastern Conference teams this season are against Toledo. … Half of the Fuel’s 12 games against the other two Western Conference divisions are against Missouri.
