WELL IT WAS A 20 YEAR OLD PRAYER THAT WAS FINALLY ANSWERED.
TONIGHT THE AHL OFFICIALLY RETURNED TO THE AUD AS THE UTICA COMETS HOSTED THE ALBANY DEVILS.
TO THE NEWLY REVAMPED UTICA MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM AND MR. HOCKEY, GORDIE HOWE DROPPING THE PUCK ON THE COMETS HOME SEASON.
FIRST PERIOD ACTION AND IT'S THE DEVILS ON THE ATTACK EARLY.  25 SECONDS AFTER A JOE WHITNEY GOAL IT'S DEFENSEMEN JON MERRILL RINGING THE DINNER BELL.  HE DENTS THE POST TO PUT THE DEVILS UP 2-0.
THE COMETS WOULD EVENTUALLY GET ON THE BOARD, IN THE THIRD PERIOD IT'S FRANK CORRADO ON THE POWER PLAY.  HE MUSCLES ONE THROUGH.
THE DEVILS WOULD ADD AN EMPTY NETTER AND THE COMETS LOSE THEIR HOME OPENER 4-1.
