Pascal Pelletier scored the game-winning goal for the Utica Comets with 3 minutes, 43 seconds left in the third period in a 3-2 win American Hockey League win over the Rochester Americans on Friday at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester.

Comets goalie Joacim Eriksson had 24 saves. Rochester started out leading in the first period, but Alexandre Grenier and Patrick Mullen tied the game up by the end of the second period.

Edited the next morning (November 24).

Success!!! Comets win their first home game, and with a 2-0 shut out, no less!!! Yannick Weber and Darren Archibald did the scoring. Maybe the Mayor should hold a ticker-tape parade for the Comets, or at least present them with the keys to the city!

In other hockey news, Clinton Comets hero and “enforcer” Ian Anderson died at age 75. Anderson, a native of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, and a longtime resident of the Town of Kirkland, played 285 games over five seasons with the Comets. He had 33 goals and 212 assists in those five seasons, including 12 goals and 59 assists in 1967-68, when the Comets (57-5-10) lost only five times, believed to be the lowest number of losses in the history of modern professional hockey.
