Streamable Clarity Improvement Notice

 

Continuing with last issues theme, going to be Players full name (jersey number) – place in streamable (if not outright obvious) then every sub sequential play featuring that player it’ll be last name(jersey number) – place in streamable (if not outright obvious) I’m also going to reduce the amount of hyperlink in the GOAL streamables, since that’s what I think MOST people are here for and don’t want some gaudy blue taking up the screen.

 

1st period

 

Comets in White

 

 

Score at the end of the first period: 3-1 Syracuse

 

Somehow shots favored Utica 14 ot 10…maybe because I kept having to turn away from the sequel to Cloverfield (shakey cam joke), but it genuinely felt like the shots on net were pretty weak and nowhere near that high. Hopefully Utica gets it together, with Boucher back in the lineup there shouldn’t be any excuses why they can’t get decent shots on net…

 

2nd Period

 

 

The Score at the end of the 2nd period: 5-2 Crunch

 

¯_(ツ)_/¯

 

3rd Period

 

 

Final Score: 6-2 Syracuse Crunch

Takeaways

 

  • Comets once again outshoot their opponent by a significant margin, but are unable to find the back of the net…this time they outshoot Syracuse 34 to 23. They managed to hold Syracuse to only 3 shots in the third period, so its pretty unfortunate that even with 5 powerplays to Syracuse’ 3, they were unable to capitalize on anything. ESPECIALLY, with Reid Boucher back in the lineup.

 

Comets Three Stars

  • Reid Boucher – two point night, team high 4 shots
  • Tanner Kero – two point night, 3 shots
  • Zack MacEwen – 2 shots and actually tried tonight.

 

What’s Next?

 

Comets get a bit of a break from the monotony of getting shitpumped every night, and return next Friday against the Toronto Marlies for their final match of the season. The Marlies are 6-3-0-1 through the month of March with their most recent result being a loss to the North Division’s 2nd place Rochester Americans, by a score of 5-2. The Marlies will play Rochester again this Sunday to wrap up that season series as well, so both the Comets AND Marlies will be heading into that Friday match up well rested and prepared (I hope). Unfortunately for the Comets, both the Cleveland Monsters AND Laval Rocket won their games Saturday night meaning the Comets (assuming they’re still TRYING to make playoffs) are in an incredibly tight 4 team race for the final playoff spot. Fortunately for Cleveland, Utica AND Laval, the Belleville Senators have now lost 2 straight, opening the door for the bottom 5th-7th place teams to have a shot.

 

Until next Friday though (or possibly Saturday depending on if I have house viewings or some other shit throughout the week that exhausts me) I will see you all then! Go Canucks Go, god bless Canada, and oh yeah, Fuck Messier! Good night folks! (or morning, most likely)
