Utica Comets Close Home Weekend With A Win


 YES! a 3-2 victory over the Iowa Wild!

Comets really needed that win after Friday and Saturday losses to Abbortsford

After a tough two game set with Abbotsford, the Utica Comets rebounded nicely on Sunday with a 3-2 victory over the Iowa Wild at the Utica Memorial Auditorium.  The Comets, who moved back over the .500 line at 30-29-4-4, are now five points behind Rockford for the final Western Conference playoff berth with ten games to play.

Pascal Pelletier led all Utica skaters into a three-point night (1-2-3), while Jeremy Welsh and Brandon DeFazio also scored for the Comets.  Defenseman Frank Corrado had two assists for his second straight game.  Goaltender Joe Cannata, who started on home ice for the first time since Jan. 3, made 32 saves on 34 shots for the victory.
