Why you should care: Comets are going to come in today and look to take down the Eastern Conference’s best team after suffering a setback to their biggest rivals in Syracuse last night. Utica is presently outside of a playoff spot at the moment and need all the wins they can get. Wilkes-Barre will look to complete a perfect weekend.
