With the Utica Comets going all the way to the Calder Cup Finals this year, their season extended into June, which makes the off-season much shorter. Before you know it, it will be time for the preseason and another exciting season for our hometown heroes. This year the Comets vs. Crunch rivalry is going to begin on foreign soil!
The Utica Comets are just one game away from being eliminated from the Calder Cup Finals after Friday night’s 6-3 loss in Game 4 to the Manchester Monarchs at The Utica Memorial Auditorium. Despite having their home crowd behind them, the Comets found themselves in a three-goal deficit before the third period even began and now trail the series 3-1
Sven Baertschi pulled off a natural hat trick in the second period of Game 3 on Thursday night leading the Utica Comets to a 4-1 victory and giving the team a 2-1 advantage in the Western Conference Finals.
The Comets win in game-7 against the Oklahoma City Barons on Wednesday night has extended the team's post-season run, once again. Utica has now advanced to the finals of the Western Conference against Grand Rapids, which is their final obstacle before June's Calder Cup finals
Ever since The Utica Comets joined the AHL, the Syracuse Crunch quickly became their biggest rival. Some rivalries are friendly, but this one sometimes can get pretty serious. The big story after last year's season was the jersey bet between Comets President Rob Esche and Crunch President Howard Dolgon. Now the big story this post-season is the reconfiguration of the AHL Conferences which now puts Syracuse and Utica in the same division! This has caused some serious Twitter smack talk!
