Excuse me while I wax poetic here. In November of 2018, I had a scheduling change at work that would completely alter the next few years of my life. I was home by 3:30 PM every single day and needed something to fill the void before my wife got home from work. Enter the Utica … Continue reading The Last Comets Harvest: The one versus the Rochester Americans
https://twitter.com/UticaComets/status/1392541202281648129?s=20 I have seen things you wouldn't believe. Five attackers setting up to fire below the circles. I've watched a journeyman AHL tweener turn into a Sedin twin at the twilight of his Canucks career. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time ...to move. Tonight is the last home … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: A Final Goodbye to the City of Utica
Arise, arise, Riders of Utica! Sticks shall be shaken, shinguards shall be splintered, a stick-day, a red day, ere the sun rises! Skate now, skate now, skate! Skate for ruin and the season's ending! Death! Death! Death! Forth Eorlingas! DiPietro's battle cry was heard echoing through the hallways of the Adirondack Bank Center as he … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: RETURN OF THE (SHORT) KING
The Comets look to rebound from a devastating 7-1 loss to the Syracuse Crunch when they face off against the *checks notes* Syracuse Crunch. Yeah, the schedule gets pretty bland and repetitive from here on out. Six of the next eleven games come against either Syracuse or Rochester, so variety will be out the window. … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Jonah Goaldjovich Does the Thing! Twice!
Following their gruelling shutout victory over the Binghamton Devils, the Utica Comets look for their second straight win tonight against the Rochester Americans! The 'Merks and the 'Mets...wait, that doesn't sound right. The 'Merks and the Comets have split wins through six games this season, with Utica barely edging the 'Merks by a single point, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The Gang Opens the Floodgates
Fresh off of back-to-back losses against Providence and Syracuse, the Utica Comets return to action for a home game against the Binghamton Devils. https://twitter.com/BingDevils/status/1384530862499319813?s=20 For those unaware, there is much discussion in upstate New York surrounding the crumbling relationship between the New Jersey Devils and their current affiliate Binghamton. https://twitter.com/CoryHergott/status/1383172528294612994?s=20 Special shoutout to former CanucksArmy … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Utica Comets Exorcise Some Demons
After posting last night's recap, I stayed up until midnight recording a deadline recap episode of the CreaseCast podcast. Check it out! After a 5:30 AM wakeup, safe to say I'm feeling pretty exhausted. Thus, this will probably be a lowkey game recap that relies a lot on gifs to summarize my thoughts instead of … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Woo-Gang Ain’t Nuttin To F**k Wit
The Comets are two days removed from a tough return-to-action this past weekend—a weekend in which they picked up losses to both the Rochester Americans and the Syracuse Crunch. On Friday, against the Amerks, the Comets dominated play for most of the first two periods. Unfortunately, evaporating energy levels led to some poor defensive coverage, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Multi-Point Madness!
A quick turnaround for the Utica Comets as they return to action for the first time in a month with a back-to-back. I'm not sure what the impetus was to jamming the Comets schedule with games? Including last night's game against Rochester, the Comets are in the midst of a four-in-six stretch; they play eleven … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: First Blood Part 2
Nah, it hasn't been that long, but it has been 30 days exactly since the last time the Utica Comets took the ice to face off against an opponent. Yes, the Comets will finally crack the ten-game marker of their season. Their last opponent and, conveniently, opponents tonight, the Rochester Americans, have played five times since … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The Return…
