Comeback Comets on full display

Sports

The Comets haven’t been making life very easy for themselves.

They’ve faced several early deficits in recent weeks, but that hasn’t deterred them from putting together a seven-game point streak.

“We keep going down two and then we just score and score in bunches,” Cam Darcy said.  “I think the last couple of games that’s just what happens.  Once we get one, we get rolling and we don’t stop.”

Against the Monsters last Sunday, the Comets trailed 3-0 in the second period, only to score four unanswered goals to take a 4-3 lead before picking up the 5-4 victory in overtime.

Their starts have been an issue, but the team isn’t concerned.

“I think we know how we need to play,” Darcy said.  “I think there’s times where we might not be playing the way we should be playing.  We might not be griding the way we should, getting pucks in or being smart on our blueline.”

The way the team has persevered is a testament to their character, according to head coach Trent Cull.

“It’s not a team that’s going to get down or give up,” Cull said.  “You don’t always want to be in that instance as a coach, but it’s great to see the guys battle back.”

Cull credits the team leaders, including Wacey Hamilton, Carter Bancks and Jaime Sifers for the team’s refusal to roll over.

“I can never say enough about those guys and how they get themselves going,” Cull said.  “They get our team going.”

The Comets will look to make it points in eight straight games when they host the Rochester Americans at the Adirondack Bank Center.  Puck drop is scheduled for 7pm.
