The Comets had an opportunity tonight to push their record above .500, but Passaic Valley had other plans. PV has been struggling so far this season with a 3-8-1 record so far. This was a chance for the Comets to move ahead of their .500 record. But perhaps the Comets were just a bit tired, and just couldn't hold on to the win. They quickly pull ahead to a 2-0 lead, but PV would put one in the net before the end of the first.
The second period would have the Comets and PV trading goals, and the Comets would go into the 3rd period with a 4-3 lead. Back and forth play would continue through the 3rd period, and with just less than 6 minutes to go in the 3rd PV would tie it. Then after a few penalties, the Comets would find themselves finishing off the game shorthanded.
Some close calls, and some sharp goaltending from Steve, and the Comets would hold on to the 4-4 tie.
On to River Dell this Friday, January 10th at 7:15pm at the Ice House in Hackensack.
