March 25, 2023 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Utica Comets News Release

Utica, NY. - For the second straight game, the Comets took to the ice against both a division and in-state rival as Utica battled the Rochester Americans in front of a home crowd at the Adirondack Bank Center on Saturday night. The game went back and forth all night and was characterized by the phenomenal goaltending display for sixty-give minutes. In the end, it took a shootout to decide the game. The Comets, despite the loss, continued to gain ground in the North Division playoff race.

In the shootout, the only goal was scored by Linus Weissbach which game the Americans a 1-0 victory. Nico Daws was perfect otherwise stopping 35 of 35 while Houser stopped all 21 shots.
