We are back
with this week’s Comets Militia report, where we review all the latest in news,
statistics, rumours, gossip and made up narratives regarding the Vancouver Canucks
farm team: The Utica Comets.
The success of the week was at an average level, but nowhere near the level of success they saw the first three months on the season. In three games the Comets played this week, including a back-to-back, Utica earned 3 of 6 points as they look towards their first Calder Cup playoffs berth.

When it comes to the bullies of the Western Conference, there aren't many that the Canucks can't keep up with. As frustrating as they can be against lesser competition - having developed a penchant for playing down to weaker opponents levels - the Canucks have been equal parts resilient against the powerhouses of the NHL on more nights than not. Save for one club: the Los Angeles Kings. The Canucks have one win in their last eight contest with the Kings, and have been outscored 9-25.
The Canucks built on this run of ineptitude with another uninspiring effort, dropping a 4-0 loss to the Kings at Rogers Arena. It wasn't the most lively of contests, but we'll break down what little they gave us, on the other side of the jump.

Vancouver continues their homestand on Thursday night, playing host to the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings are currently sitting on the outside looking in to the playoffs and are getting desperate for wins, but given their strong underlying numbers and history of success when the going gets tough, they still represent Vancouver's most likely opponent in round one of this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.
