In the first period, the Fuel fired the opening salvo as Kyle Stroh blasted a slap shot from the top of the right circle past Sam Marotta at 2:22 of the first frame. Anders Franzon earned the lone assist on Stroh's 17th goal of the season. The Jackals continued to pepper Carruth and finally broke through as Carruth misplayed a dump-in by Ryan Rashid at 19:06 of the period. Kevin Hart and Taylor Stefishen assisted Rashid's 11th goal of the season. Hart extended his point streak to three games and Rashid pushed his point streak to five games. The Jackals out-shot the Fuel 20-8 in the opening 20 minutes.

In the second period, Indy would capitalize on two power-play opportunities. Zach Tolkinen was whistled for holding and Matt Tassone joined him in the penalty box 1:03 later with a hooking minor. Nicklas Lindberg notched the first power-play goal with 23 seconds remaining on the minor to Tolkinen. Just 45 seconds later Nick Jones walked into a one-time blast for his second goal of the season. Justin Holl and Rhett Bly assisted Jones' power-play marker.

The Jackals came out pressing in the third period, but their comeback bid was thwarted by Carruth. Sam Marotta was pulled for the extra attacker with just under three minutes remaining, but Pete Massar added the empty-net tally at 17:32. Riley Wetmore answered less than a minute later with a rebound tap-in off of Nick Tuzzolino's cross-ice feed. Mike Seidel also assisted Wetmore's sixth goal of the season. However, time was against the Jackals and Vincent Arseneau's empty-net goal with nine seconds left sealed the Fuel's victory.

Marotta stopped 20 of 23 shots faced but shouldered the loss. Carruth turned aside 43 of 45 shots faced for the win. The Jackals went 0-for-5 on the power-play and Indy went 2-for-5 with the man advantage.
