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

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

3/4/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

The Utica Comets are inside the final 20 games of the season, and holy guacamole, do they have a month in store for them! Two 3-in-4's to start the month, then a Tuesday game that immediately follows a double-header weekend. Afterwards, it's a triple header, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, mid-month, concluding with two more 3-in-4's at … Continue reading 3/4/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

In a battle between mediocre North Division teams playing roller-coaster hockey in 2020, the Utica Comets face off with the Toronto Marlies in another inter-divisional matchup. I say roller-coaster because both teams have had brief moments of domination. Toronto's 7-6 comeback win against Belleville or Utica's 6-3 win over Hartford being the primary example of … Continue reading 2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

2/26/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

This time last year, the Vancouver Canucks made a blockbuster trade, 1-for-1, Erik Gudbranson for Tanner Pearson. This trade-deadline, the Canucks dealt Zane McIntyre for Louis Domingue, while calling up Jake Kielly from the Kalamazoo Wings. McIntyre had a great start to the season as a backup, winning 6 of his first ten starts. Unfortunately, … Continue reading 2/26/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

2/21/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Belleville Senators

The Comets are back in action tonight as they hit the road to take on the Division-leading Belleville Senators. The Senators have been running train on the division as of late, having gone 8-1-1-0 in their last ten matchups exclusively against North Division teams. This run of dominance has given the Sens an eight-point lead … Continue reading 2/21/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Belleville Senators

2/16/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

The stakes have never been higher... Last night, the Rochester Americans defeated the Syracuse Crunch via the shootout to give themselves a one-point advantage over the Comets for the second-place standing in the North Division. Nipping at the Comets heels are the surging Toronto Marlies, who are on a four-game win streak and sit only … Continue reading 2/16/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

2/14/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch

Good evening Canucks Nation, it's time for another edition of the Comets Harvest! I missed out on last Wednesday's game against the Laval Rocket as my sister took out a small personal loan leveraged against everything she owns, and purchased lower bowl seats to the Sedins jersey retirement game for us to go and see … Continue reading 2/14/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch

2/8/20 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch

The Utica Comets return home for a crucial intra-divisional match-up against rivals, Syracuse Crunch, after a disappointing four-game "road trip" around the North Division that saw them pick up a single win. The Comets had a wild one in their last outing when they came back from four one-goal deficits to force overtime against the … Continue reading 2/8/20 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch
