Game 9: Fuel at Alaska

The Indy Fuel’s first regular-season trip to Alaska saw a solid first period, but two goals by the hosts in a span of less than two minutes turned out to be the difference as the host Aces beat the Fuel 5-1 in Anchorage.

The trip continues with two weekend games Friday and Saturday at Sullivan Arena in Anchorage, with both facing off at 11:15 p.m. Indianapolis time.

Eric Levine stopped 42 shots in the Fuel net – including 18 in the first period.

Kevin Lynch provided the Fuel offense, scoring 1:10 into the third period, but Alaska’s Nolan Descoteaux was able to answer three minutes later to restore the hosts’ three-goal lead.

Drew Schiestel and Jonathan Carlsson provided the assists on Lynch’s goal, which was his third of the season.

Alaska built that lead in the second period, when Steven Tarasuk scored 3:09 into the frame. Peter Sivak and Tim Coffman then tallied goals 1:44 apart in the later stages of the period to give the Aces a 3-0 lead. Stephen Perfetto had four assists for Alaska. Descoteaux and Sivak had a goal and an assist each.

After winning its first two games, Indy is now 0-6-1 in its last seven contests.


3 stars

  1. Stephen Perfetto (AK) 4 assists
  2. Michael Garteig (AK) 28 saves
  3. Nolan Descoteaux (AK) G/A


  1. Indy’s penalty kill was again solid, going a perfect 3-for-3 in a largely clean game. The Fuel currently have the ECHL’s third-best PK at 89.7 percent, with three GA in 29 chances. Indy has killed seven straight opposing penalties.
  2. Kevin Lynch continues to have the Fuel’s hot stick, having scored the team’s last two goals. He has three goals and an assist in the Fuel’s last four games, and leads the team with seven points in nine games. Lynch has a point in six of the Fuel’s nine games this season. He also led the Fuel with five shots.
  3. Both assists on the Fuel goal went to defensemen. Blueliners have 14 of the Fuel’s 29 assists, with Carlsson and Nick Mattson each tying for the team lead with four. Lynch also has four assists.
  4. The Fuel’s secret to success is offense – when the Fuel score at least twice, they are 2-1-1, but are 0-5-0 when scoring fewer than two goals. In their current three-game regulation skid, they’ve scored twice,  are looking for offense, having tallied two goals in the last three games. Indy has tallied one or fewer goals in five contests, all regulation losses.
  5. Levine has made three straight starts, and has been solid throughout the season in his four starts. He has a .921 save percentage, which was bolstered by the 42-save performance Wednesday night, but is looking for his first victory.
  6. The game was a homecoming for Tyler Currier, who hails from Anchorage and played his college hockey in Sullivan Arena as a member of the University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves, as well as playing junior hockey in the state.


Indy went with an 11-forward, 5-defenseman attack against Alaska.
