The Utica Comets will play game three of the AHL's Western Conference finals without forward Brandon DeFazio.

The AHL has suspended DeFazio for two games as the result of an interference incident in game two. He'll also miss game four on Friday night.

Game three of the series takes place tonight in Michigan with the Comets and Grand Rapids Griffins tied at one game each after splitting the first two games in Utica.
