Game 16: Fuel at Quad City

It had been a while since the Indy Fuel found themselves on the small end of the scoreboard at the end of the night.

Two weeks after their six-game win streak began, the Fuel saw it snapped Friday with a 4-3 shootout loss at Quad City.

Quad City’s Alex Petan and Sam Warning scored in the shootout, while the Fuel’s Alex Wideman and Kevin Lynch were stopped.

Despite the loss, which moves Indy’s record to 8-6-2, the Fuel extended their streak of games without a regulation loss to seven.

The game saw scored in quick succession in the second period, which ended tied at 2-2. In the third, Quad City took its first lead of the game 60 seconds in when Sam Warning scored his eighth of the year, but the Fuel answered four minutes later, when Wideman threw the puck to the front of the net, where it redirected off Lynch’s skate toward goal, and ramped into the net.

Goaltenders Jake Hildebrand of Indy and Quad City’s C.J. Motte were perfect for the remainder of the game to send it into the shootout.

In the second period, the Fuel had a pair of leads and saw Quad City answer each one. Matt Rupert scored for the second straight game, blasting a shot from the left circle 3:59 into the second. Anthony Beauregard made the play from below the goal line, winning the puck out of a double-team and feeding Rupert for the one-timer.

The fireworks began late in the period. Michael Parks tied the game for Quad City with 3:14 left in the second, but Wideman untied it with 1:13 left. He fired home a rebound of Jonathan Carlsson’s point shot to give the Fuel a 2-1 lead. It would be short-lived, as Jack Nevins scored for the Mallards, burying a rebound with 11 seconds left in the second period.

Quad City has a 44-31 shot advantage, but much of that was built in the first period, when the Mallards had a 15-7 edge and Hildebrand made a number of key saves. Early in the second, Quad City had a solid scoring chance that broke through Hildebrand, but defenseman Chris Williams swept it off the line.

Indy was 0-for-3 on the power play, while Quad City was 0-for-4.
