Game 24: Fuel at Cincinnati

The Indy Fuel will be looking forward to returning to the friendly confines of the Indiana Farmers Coliseum after finishing a five-game road trip with a 4-1 loss to the Cincinnati Cyclones Friday evening.

The Fuel dropped all five games on the trip and are now 8-14-2 on the season. Indy will be looking to snap a nine-game winless streak Saturday night, when it hosts Quad City in the Teddy Bear Toss game.

New acquisition Alex Guptill scored for the second straight game to provide the Fuel’s offense, but for the second straight night, Cincinnati’s Michael Houser had an outstanding game in net, stopping 31 shots.

Eric Levine made 21 saves for the Fuel in the loss, allowing three goals.

Cincinnati took a 2-0 lead after a period on a goal by Jordan Sims, followed by Peter Leblanc’s power play goal. Guptill’s goal came midway through the second, and cut the deficit in half, but the Cyclones’ Shane Walsh scored just ahead of the second-period buzzer to re-take a 2-goal lead – a key momentum swing headed into the third – one that saw Houser make 11 saves and keep the Fuel at bay. Indy had three power plays in the third, but was 0-for-5 with the man advantage. Cincinnati was 1-for-2.


Houser allowed one goal to Indy for the second straight night to seal the victory. The Cyclones added a late empty-netter to seal their victory.

Tristan King, another Fuel newcomer, also had a point in the contest, as he had the primary assist on Guptill’s goal. The two had been teammates in Allen before coming to the Fuel in separate trades.


3 stars

  1. Michael Houser (CIN) 31 saves
  2. Shane Walsh (CIN) G/A

  1. New defenseman Robin Press again gets a lot of pucks on net. Friday was his second straight game with six shots on goal. Alex Guptill had five and Jonathan Carlsson four shots.
  2. Guptill also scored in his last game with Allen, and so he has three goals in as many games – playing for two different teams. He has six goals and 10 points in 20 games for Manchester, Allen and Indy this season.
  3. Nick Mattson had the second assist on Guptill’s goal and had three points on the roadtrip. He leads Fuel defensemen with nine assists.
  4. The Fuel are now 0-9-0 when scoring one or fewer goals, and are 2-10-0 when scoring two or fewer. The Fuel’s key has been scoring three goals – they are 6-3-1 when tallying at least three.
  5. Indy is now 2-3-0 against Cincinnati this season. Their next meeting will be a home-and-home beginning Dec. 30 at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum. The teams will meet 12 times this season, with five of the 12 meetings coming in December.
