Utica Comets 3 over Hamilton Bulldogs 2 at the AUD

The Utica Comets extended their lead on the Western Conference’s North Division to seven points on Wednesday night in a 3-2 victory over the Hamilton Bulldogs at The Utica Memorial Auditorium.

It was a busy night for Nicklas Jensen (pictured at top) ; the first star of the game scored two of the Comets three goals which total’s to six on the season. Alex Friesen also had quite the return tallying two assists after suffering from a shoulder injury since the first game of the season. Joacim Eriksson recorded his fifth win on the season and stopped 19 of 21 shots taken by the Bulldogs which kept the Comets in first place with 26 points out of a possible 30.

Exactly half way through the opening period, Alexandre Grenier displayed some dirty dekes just before he scored his fifth goal of the year and the first of the game. After receiving a pass from Cal O’Reilly, Grenier carried the puck into the offensive zone for a 2-on-1 opportunity. A toe drag and a move to the backhand allowed Grenier to sneak the rubber underneath Mike Condon’s pads to make it 1-0.

The Comets will have one day of rest before they head into a potentially record breaking weekend. This Friday, they will head to Rochester for their second meeting of the season with the Americans at 7 p.m.
