The Comets are back in it.
They staved off elimination with a 5-2 victory over the Marlies on Wednesday night in Game 3 of their best-of-five postseason series.
Reid Boucher got the scoring started with a power-play goal eight minutes in to give Utica their first lead of the entire series. It was his first game back since suffering a broken hand in late March.
Wacey Hamilton's one-timer extended the lead to 2-0 less than two minutes later, and Cole Cassels made it 3-0 with a breakaway goal later in the opening frame.
It stayed that way until Carl Rosen got the Marlies on the board with 9:31 left in the game, however Tyler Motte answered with his first goal as a Comet four minutes later.
Colin Greening cut the Toronto deficit to 4-2 shortly after, but Cassels put the game on ice with an empty-netter in the closing moments.
The two teams will play Game 4 at the Adirondack Bank Center on Friday night. Faceoff is set for 7pm.
