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

12/27/19 – Utica Comets vs. Hershey Bears

Merry Christmas Canucks Nation, it’s been a while since we checked in on the Farm with the Comets Harvest! As you all know, I was selected as the fourth fellow for the Botchford Project and that, coupled with my many Holiday obligations, took me away from my usual Comets coverage. My day as a Botchford Fellow was … Continue reading 12/27/19 – Utica Comets vs. Hershey Bears

12/13/19 – Utica Comets vs. Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Feels like we are in a state of Deja Vu. The Comets are back for another double-header weekend where they, once again, take on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers! The Comets and the Sound Tigers have played three of their four-game series just in the past seven days. With their fourth and final match of the … Continue reading 12/13/19 – Utica Comets vs. Bridgeport Sound Tigers

12-7-19 – Utica Comets vs. Providence Bruins

Well Canucks fans, its time to follow up the main course with some dessert as we move from the Canucks wild OT win over Buffalo into the Comets roadie against Providence.   The last time these teams met, the Comets struggled to score on Bruins tendy, Max Lagace. Despite controlling shot-attempts for the bulk of … Continue reading 12-7-19 – Utica Comets vs. Providence Bruins

COMETS CORSI PROJECT – REPORT CARDS

Good Morning Canuck Nation, I'm pleased to have finally put together something outside of game recaps, that is wholly different than anything I've ever written about, hockey stats, and lots of 'em! Since I began writing recaps of the Comets, I've always wanted to provide more depth to my recaps but didn't know how to do so. Over … Continue reading COMETS CORSI PROJECT – REPORT CARDS

11/23/19 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

Oh my goodness, look at this quick turnaround! The Comets are back at it in Laval to close out their weekend, hopefully, with a less embarrassing performance!   Friday was a game marred in the all too familiar sight of horrid defensive coverage, as the Comets went on to drop their eight loss of the … Continue reading 11/23/19 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

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

11/9/19 – Utica Comets vs. Binghamton Devils

Welcome, Canucks Nation, to the hungover edition of the Comets Harvest. pre-emptive sorry for the sentence fragments. This edition took like five hours to write, and my brain is fried, haha   Last night, dreading having to write words about the team's fifth straight loss, I thought it was for the best that the Comet's … Continue reading 11/9/19 – Utica Comets vs. Binghamton Devils

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
