It was a packed house at the Adirondack Bank Center on Monday night for the 2018 AHL All-Star Challenge.

The North skated past the Pacific Division, 1-0 in the championship game of the round-robin tournament.

Utica's Reid Boucher scored three goals on the night and Comets goalie Thatcher Demko made some key saves in the final game shutout.

Demko stopped 13 of 19 shots in four games, earning two wins in the process.

The Comets return to action on Friday when they host the Syracuse Crunch at 7:00.
