COMETS HARVEST: Rematches and Reconnected Controllers

https://youtu.be/fW0k9_OOBuo So that we're all aware of my mental state coming into tonight's re-re-re-rematch between the Utica Comets and the Syracuse Crunch--the above video is where my head is presently at, and it's giving me life.

2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

It feels genuinely surreal to be writing about hockey again.  The last time I wrote about hockey here, the Comets were returning home off of a three-game road hit, hoping to extend their current win streak to four.  Despite getting an early lead, the Comets defensive structure collapsed. Michael Di Pietro did all he could … Continue reading 2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

2/5/20 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

The Utica Comets are in Laval, Quebec tonight following a disappointing start to their February, with that 3-2 loss to the Cleveland Monsters on the road. The Comets start in 2020 has been a weird one. After a five-game win streak vaulted them to the top spot in the North Division, the Comets floundered with … Continue reading 2/5/20 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

12/6/19 – Utica Comets vs. Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Good Evening Canucks Nation, let us gather around the fire and tell the tale of the Utica Comets versus the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.   The Sound Tigers sit dead last in the AHL's Atlantic Division. Last Saturday, Sound Tigers reporter Michael Fornabaio reported that the team was up to 147 man-games lost to injury/illness this … Continue reading 12/6/19 – Utica Comets vs. Bridgeport Sound Tigers

11/22/19 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

The Comets blistering undefeated October seems like decades ago. After a pristine 8-0 start, the Comets have had a dismal November record of 2-6-1-0.   Despite four goals in their last outing, the messy defensive play of the Comets came back to bite them, as they lost a heartbreaker at home. The loss was the … Continue reading 11/22/19 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

11/16/19 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

Never mind the darkness, we still can find a way, 'cause nothin' lasts forever, even cold November rain. Those were the words of Axl Rose some 27 years ago. Tonight, I sit listening to the pouring rain outside of my nerd-room window, quietly clutching a photograph of Olli Juolevi's legs. Praying to the heavens that … Continue reading 11/16/19 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

11/15/19 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch

Good evening Canucks Nation! It's time for another catch-up on the Farm! Tonight the Utica Comets hit the road to take on the Syracuse Crunch. The Crunch are coming off a 4-3 loss to the Rochester Americans, while the Comets are coming off a nice four-day vacation. The Comets last game was a 3-1 loss … Continue reading 11/15/19 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch

11/8/19 – Utica Comets vs. WBS Penguins

I'm going to preface this pre-amble with, "I don't actually want this to happen."   But how funny would it be if the Utica Comets dropped four straight losses after winning their first eight to start the year?   After getting off to the best start in franchise history, the Comets have seen their lead over the … Continue reading 11/8/19 – Utica Comets vs. WBS Penguins
