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 week was short for the Comets as they only had two games, both on the road in a back-to-back. The Comets managed to return home with all four points as they are looking at the final stretch before the Calder Cup playoffs. Currently, the Comets are sitting at first in the division with a massive lead but are looking upwards in the conference standings, trying to earn a better seed for the post-season. The recent bolstering of the Comets defense will surely help!

The Blue Jackets came in to Vancouver having been severely outplayed last night against the Edmonton Oilers, so tonight's game should have been a schedule loss. But, as the Canucks were reminded tonight, there's a reason why they play the games. Vancouver came out flying but stumbled thereafter, as the Jackets put six goals in the back of Vancouver's net en route to a disappointing 6-2 final.

Lets just get this out of the way: this might be a trap game. The 'Bus is coming off a win last night in Edmonton where the shootout decided it all, so they ended late and then had to travel to Vancouver. They're pooped! As for the Canucks, they've won two straight against, well, the Leafs and Flyers. They still count and so help me if they lose this one. I mean, IT'S COLUMBUS!!! They are the sixth worst team in the league.
Aside from a setback (Editor's note: a setback has happened since this writing. How fortuitous!), Zack Kassian should be in the lineup and then we all play "Who comes out of the lineup that isn't Ronny Kenins?" Maybe Linden Vey will get injured or something, because Kenins seems to just luck out when someone comes back.
