Mitch Eliot Scores First Professional Goal in Comets Loss

Friday, November 8, 2019

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (6-5-1-1) – 2
Utica Comets (8-4-0-0) – 1

The Comets jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, but would ultimately fall to the Penguins 2-1 at the Adirondack Bank Center.

Mitch Eliot scored his first professional goal just 58 seconds into the game while on the power-play. Kole Lind won the face-off back to Eliot who skated to the middle of the ice and let a shot fly. The puck hit a WBS player in front of the net and deflected up into the air and over the head of Penguins goalie Dustin Tokarski and into the net.

Following a back-and-forth second period the Comets were still holding onto their 1-0 lead heading into the final period. The Penguins scored a power-play goal at 14:46 and added the game-winning goal just 34 seconds later.

Michael DiPietro was strong once again in goal and finished with 29 saves in the loss.
