Last Game, Comets: Utica defeated Albany 2-1 on the road Friday night.
Friday’s win marked the first time in franchise history a Comets team defeated Albany in regulation; Utica has sold out 64 straight home games coming into the weekend slate; tonight marks the annual Pink the Rink Night at the Aud; Reid Boucher, who was placed on waivers Thursday night to make room for Taylor Hall’s return to the New Jersey lineup, was claimed by Nashville earlier today–if he had cleared, he would have been reassigned to Albany; last night’s loss broke a 5 game home winning streak for the Devils.
