Benn Ferriero scored the game-winning goal in overtime for the second straight night as the hot Utica Comets edged the Abbotsford Heat 4-3 Friday.

The goal, Ferriero’s 15th of the season, extended his point streak to eight games, and gave the Comets their fourth consecutive victory and sixth straight over the Heat, including three in overtime.

After winning both games of their out and back trip to British Columbia, the Comets are 15-20-2-3 for 35 points. They are 15-12-1-2 since starting the season 0-8-1-1.

Alexandre Grenier added two goals for Utica – his 14th and 15th, the second of which tied the game 3-3 at 11:13 of the third period – and Brandon DeFazio had the other. Pascal Pelletier had two assists, and Jordan Schroeder and Yann Sauve had the others, with Sauve passing ahead to Ferriero for the winning goal. Joacim Eriksson, playing his third straight game, made 23 saves.

Markus Granlund, Max Reinhart and Brett Olson scored the other goals for the Heat (26-15-2-1), and Joey MacDonald made 35 saves.

Schroeder, a former first round draft choice who broke his ankle playing for the Vancouver Canucks early in the season, played the two games in Abbotsford with the Comets and had five shots Friday and an assist Saturday. It’s unknown whether he’ll be with the team when the Lake Erie Monsters visit the Aud Tuesday.

The Comets trail the fourth-place Monsters by just two points in the North Division.
