Comets Stunned 3-2 in Oklahoma City

Luke Tubia, WIBX

The Oklahoma City Barons stunned the Utica Comets by a
score of 3-2 Thursday Night at the Cox Convention Center, with a goal with
four seconds left in regulation, and then the game-winning goal just 17
seconds into overtime.

With the defeat, the Comets fell to 11-18-2-2, and the Barons improved to
14-17-1-5. Nicklas Jensen netted two goals for the Comets, while Anton
Lander picked up three points, all assists, for the Barons.

The Comets struck first just 5:13 into the game, as Nicklas Jensen deflected
a Yann Sauve shot from the point past Bachman. Cal O’Reilly picked up the
secondary assist.

Exactly a minute into a late period power play, the Barons tied the game at
one. Anton Lander from the hashmark on the boards, found Tyler Pitlick all
alone in the slot. Pitlick one-timed the Lander feed through the five-hole
of Joe Cannata. Brad Hunt picked up his 16th point of the season with the
secondary assist.

The score remained locked at one until 4:11 into the third period, where
Jensen would find the back of the net yet again. Benn Ferriero blasted a
one-timer on the power play, the puck found Jensen’s stick on the back door,
after it was deflected by Alex Grenier in front. Jensen knew what to do from
there, and banged home the puck for his second goal of the night.

The Comets snagged defeat from the jaws of victory as they gave up a goal
with four seconds remaining in the game. Landers streaked down Cannata’s
right-hand side, and threw the puck in front. The puck found Ryan Hamilton
in the slot, who found the back of the net to tie the game at two.

Just 17 seconds into overtime Taylor Fedun skated through several Comets
defenders, and roofed the game-winning goal past Cannata. Anton Lander and
Andrew Miller picked up the assists on the goal.

Joe Cannata stopped 29 of 32 shots en route to the loss.

The Comets are back in action Saturday night as they take on the Texas Stars
at 8 p.m. EST.
