Analysis:

The Indy Fuel are looking to bounce back from a 5-2 loss at the hands of their in-state rivals, the Fort Wayne Komets. This is the Fuel’s third game in as many days and their fourth in five days.

The Fuel go into this game at .500 for the second time this season. The last time they were at .500 was on Thursday when they defeated the Utah Grizzlies 4-1.

The Wheeling Nailers are looking to recover from a 5-2 loss themselves to the Reading Royals.

The Nailers are playing in their home opener tonight, as they look to improve on a 1-3 record, which is good for last in the league. Their lone win came in a shootout against the Royals.

Players To Watch

Indy: Josh Shalla

Shalla is going to look to continue his season-long point streak, in which he has recorded 11 points (3G, 8A) in eight games. He is currently tied for ninth in the league in points.

Wheeling: Winston Day Chief

Day Chief has always had the Fuel’s number. The 30-year-old played with the Cincinnati Cyclones last season, which meant that he saw Indy quite a lot in Central Division matchups.

The forward has recorded a goal and an assist in three games with the Nailers so far this season. Last season with the Cyclones, Day Chief put up 22 goals and seven assists in 60 games.
