The Last Comets Harvest: The one versus the Rochester Americans

Excuse me while I wax poetic here. In November of 2018, I had a scheduling change at work that would completely alter the next few years of my life. I was home by 3:30 PM every single day and needed something to fill the void before my wife got home from work. Enter the Utica … Continue reading The Last Comets Harvest: The one versus the Rochester Americans

COMETS HARVEST: A Final Goodbye to the City of Utica

https://twitter.com/UticaComets/status/1392541202281648129?s=20 I have seen things you wouldn't believe. Five attackers setting up to fire below the circles. I've watched a journeyman AHL tweener turn into a Sedin twin at the twilight of his Canucks career. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time ...to move. Tonight is the last home … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: A Final Goodbye to the City of Utica

COMETS HARVEST: The Last Dance at the Galaxy Cup [For the Canucks]

One night and one more time Thanks for the memories Even though they weren't so great "He tastes like you only sweeter." The great poets Fall out Boy summarized the Utica Comets history better than a thousand monkeys working on a thousand typewriters writing the great Canadian analogy ever could. The last line, in particular, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The Last Dance at the Galaxy Cup [For the Canucks]

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. And maybe, just maybe, the good vibes I'm feeling tonight will travel 4700 kilometres eastward to the Adirondack Bank … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Rematches and Reconnected Controllers

COMETS HARVEST: RETURN OF THE (SHORT) KING

Arise, arise, Riders of Utica! Sticks shall be shaken, shinguards shall be splintered, a stick-day, a red day, ere the sun rises! Skate now, skate now, skate! Skate for ruin and the season's ending! Death! Death! Death! Forth Eorlingas! DiPietro's battle cry was heard echoing through the hallways of the Adirondack Bank Center as he … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: RETURN OF THE (SHORT) KING

COMETS HARVEST: Jonah Goaldjovich Does the Thing! Twice!

The Comets look to rebound from a devastating 7-1 loss to the Syracuse Crunch when they face off against the *checks notes* Syracuse Crunch. Yeah, the schedule gets pretty bland and repetitive from here on out. Six of the next eleven games come against either Syracuse or Rochester, so variety will be out the window. … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Jonah Goaldjovich Does the Thing! Twice!

COMETS HARVEST: Utica Comets Exorcise Some Demons

Fresh off of back-to-back losses against Providence and Syracuse, the Utica Comets return to action for a home game against the Binghamton Devils. https://twitter.com/BingDevils/status/1384530862499319813?s=20 For those unaware, there is much discussion in upstate New York surrounding the crumbling relationship between the New Jersey Devils and their current affiliate Binghamton. https://twitter.com/CoryHergott/status/1383172528294612994?s=20 Special shoutout to former CanucksArmy … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Utica Comets Exorcise Some Demons

COMETS HARVEST: Woo-Gang Ain’t Nuttin To F**k Wit

After posting last night's recap, I stayed up until midnight recording a deadline recap episode of the CreaseCast podcast. Check it out! After a 5:30 AM  wakeup, safe to say I'm feeling pretty exhausted. Thus, this will probably be a lowkey game recap that relies a lot on gifs to summarize my thoughts instead of … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Woo-Gang Ain’t Nuttin To F**k Wit

COMETS HARVEST: Multi-Point Madness!

The Comets are two days removed from a tough return-to-action this past weekend—a weekend in which they picked up losses to both the Rochester Americans and the Syracuse Crunch. On Friday, against the Amerks, the Comets dominated play for most of the first two periods. Unfortunately, evaporating energy levels led to some poor defensive coverage, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Multi-Point Madness!
