Comets Watch Party For Today’s Game 5
After outscoring the Toronto Marlies 10-4 in two games at the Adirondack Bank Center this week, the Utica Comets are on the road Sunday looking to pull off a stunning series upset against the team with the best regular season record in the AHL this season.
Utica dropped the first two games of the series, but the return of Reid Boucher has been impactful to say the least. He's scored three goals in two playoff games since coming back to Utica - getting the Comets off to 1-0 leads in each.
Nickolay Goldobin has an assist in each game of the series, including two in each game this week.
And, goalie Thatcher Demko is fending off an incredible number of shots on goal. Demoko has the second most saves for a goalie so far this postseason (143), and has faced an average of 38.5 shots per game.
The Comets and Marlies play a decisive Game 5 in Toronto Sunday at 4:00. In addition to Sunday's watch party at the Adirondack Bank Center, the game can be streamed via a premium package the AHL LIVE. You can catch the radio broadcast on 94.9 WKLL FM in Utica.
The winner advances to the next round to face the Syracuse Crunch in a best-of-seven series.
