The Comets’ Week Ahead – Nov. 28, 2017
The Utica Comets nabbed a pair of much needed wins on the road this past weekend, defeating the Laval Rocket twice and snapping a three-game losing streak.
The Comets are back home Wednesday night at the Adirondack Back Center, and again on Friday before wrapping up the weekend Saturday night in Bridgeport.
Utica will host Rochester on Wednesday night and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Friday night. Saturday night they visit Connecticut for the back end of a home-and-home with the Tigers.
Utica enters Wednesday night with a record of 8-9-0-1 (17 points) and hope to play in front of a home sellout crowd for the 102nd consecutive game.
The Comets have won three of four meetings against the Amerks this season, although Rochester sits above Utica in North Division standings at 11-5-2-1 (25 points).
Friday and Saturday's opponent, Bridgeport, currently sits at 11-7-1-0, good for fourth in the Atlantic Division.
Comets Player Notes: Young prospect Nikolay Goldobin was recalled by the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. The 22-year-old leads the Comets with 19 points (7G, 12A) in 18 games with Utica this season.
