Welcome back to the third year of the Comets Militia weekly report, where we cover all the action of Vancouver Canucks AHL Affiliate: the Utica Comets. 2014 was a great year to the Comets, as they climbed to the top of the league and look to be a serious threat for the Calder Cup. One day and one game into 2015, things do not look so great (but that is very much the definition of a small sample size).

To be completely honest, there aren't many ways to try and put lipstick on the pig we watched convulse on the ice tonight. The Los Angeles Kings started the new year off by pounding the Vancouver Canucks in the closest blowout you'll ever see. Vancouver somehow managed to build a 2-0 lead in the second period despite only firing nine shots on Jonathan Quick, but were outshot to high hell and never seemed to have the puck after that point.
Los Angeles would storm all the way back and win the game in the dying moments with two quick goals that left the Canucks stunned. Though to be fair, the Canucks looked fairly stunned for the first 48 minutes tonight as well. Read past the jump for a recap.

After a short two-game road swing to close out 2014, the Vancouver Canucks are back at home to ring in the new year against the Los Angeles Kings. Los Angeles has struggled to gain traction on the road this season, but there's a reason why they're the defending Stanley Cup champions: they're still really good and will run you out of the building if you're not careful as Vancouver learned earlier in 2014-15.
The playoff race in the Pacific division is also as tight as ever with four teams within one point of one another. The Kings will overtake Vancouver, San Jose, and Calgary with a win tonight, so the Canucks should be extra motivated to put forth their best effort.
