Utica Comets (1-0-0) – 4
Binghamton Devils (0-1-0) – 3
After finding themselves down 1-0 following 20 minutes of play, the Comets came out guns a blazing in the second scoring all four of their goals.
Just over a minute into the second Kole Lind found a wide open Carter Camper in the high slot. Camper fired a shot on net that trickled through the Devils goaltender. Reid Boucher was there to tap in the loose puck and tie the game 1-1. Boucher notched his second of the season less than a minute later off a beautiful pass from Lind.
The Comets weren’t done yet and at 6:50 of the period Justin Bailey notched his first in a Comets uniform assisted by captain Carter Bancks. Boucher got in on the action once more sending a nifty backhand pass from the corner to the top of the opposite circle to Guillaume Brisebois. Brisebois took a wrister that beat the Devils goaltender giving the Comets a 4-1 lead with 20 minutes to play.
Binghamton scored twice in the third period, but goaltender Zane McIntyre stood strong finishing with 19 saves.
Utica is on the road again this weekend when they take on the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins at 7:05pm Saturday, October 12th.
