Pascal Pelletier scored with assists from Colin Stuart and Yann Sauve 2:07 into overtime to give the Utica Comets a 4-3 American Hockey League victory over the Abbotsford Heat Saturday.
It was the Comets’ second one-goal win in as many nights over the Heat, who started the weekend with the AHL’s best record.
Kellan Lain scored his first two goals of the season to help build a 2-1 lead after two periods, and Stuart scored in the third to make it 3-2, but the Heat came back to tie it on Ben Street’s power play goal midway through the period.
That set up the game-winner the veteran Pelletier, the team’s top scorer with 19 points.
Joe Cannata, playing goal for the second straight night after going a couple of weeks without any work, made 33 saves to earn the victory after stopping 35 in Friday’s 3-2 win.
The Comets (6-11-1-1) play at Rochester Wednesday and return home Friday to play Bridgeport at The Aud.
