Belleville Sens stifled by Comets
The Belleville Senators were defeated 4-1 by the Utica Comets in another hard-fought North Division battle at CAA Arena on Wednesday night.
Belleville opened the scoring 1:58 into the contest when Roby Jarventie capitalized on a rebound for his ninth of the campaign. Later in the frame, Utica equalized after Brian Halonen would find the back of the net following a Senators turnover in the defensive zone.
Early into the second, Utica extended their advantage through Jack Dugan before Halonen tallied once again as the visitors took a 3-1 lead into the intermission.
In the third, Aarne Talvitie helped to round out the scoring for the Comets with just over five minutes remaining in regulation time as he help to end any hope of a Senators comeback.
The Belleville Senators continue their three-game homestand Friday night when they welcome the Rockford IceHogs for a 7:05 p.m. puck drop on Road to the AHL Night, presented by Mackay Insurance.
