Thatcher Demko made 26 saves and collected his second win in as many starts as the Utica Comets held off the Belleville Senators 4-2 on Saturday at the Adirondack Bank Center.

The win was Utica's third straight, led by first period goals from Jonathan Dahlen and Tanner Kero. After the Sens tied it at 2-2, Cam Darcy put the Comets' back up with under 4:00 to play in the second period.

Brendan Gaunce sealed it with an empty netter the closing seconds.

The Comets hit the road for their next four games beginning Wednesday night in Binghamton.
