Comets weekly report on all the activities down on the Vancouver Canucks farm
team has returned. The Comets have
played 2 games this week and have broken their 5 game losing streak to return
home with 2 points. There was even some
positive regression in their possession numbers.
the jump to see what went down.
have improved slightly this week though the results aren’t all that clear. Their possession has increased putting them
back to first in the league in possession statistics after dominating Toronto
on the shot clock. Their PDO has dropped
dramatically recently due to their inability to score which has not helped
them. The Comets have also played the
least amount of games in the leagues so the point gap between themselves and
the teams ahead are just as likely a by-product of the games played
2-3 Loss vs Toronto
Comets broke their old record for shots in a game by putting over 50 shots
towards Toronto. Even without score
effects the Comets massively outplayed the Marlies but their luck was not with
them tonight. Tom Sestito also contributed to a game without using his fists.
Saturday’s 3-2 OT Win @ Toronto
decided to play Joacim Eriksson in a back-to-back, a rare move for this team
but one that worked out as he posted a Quality Start.

- Travis Green is not surprised by the start of the year for Kenins.
- Green really likes the progression of Shinkaruk over the last 4-6 weeks.
- Green acknowledged Jensen is slumping but is not worried.
- Green thinks “Marky Mark” will be a good NHL goalie.
Markstrom’s bad game this week, with his “mediocre” .930 save percentage has
dropped him to 5th in the league of all goalies.
- Sanguinetti thinks Markstrom has good shoveling technique.
- Markstrom continues to “revive” his career in the AHL.
Transactions this week
It will be
a difficult week for the Comets to try and earn all 8 available points. The Comets play a back-to-back-to-back series
while they are the away team for 2 of the 3 games. The Comets will face Adirondack twice, a team
they have not lost to this year, which will be put to the test.
