Winning on the road to start things off.
The comets opened the 2019-2020 season with a 4-3 win on the road against the binghamton devils on season with a 4-3 win on the road against the binghamton devils on wednesday - hanging on despite heavy late pressure in the third period.
The team now has a week until their next game but are putting in the work with multiple small group skills sessions today.
They also should be getting a big boost with sven baertschi and nikolay goldobin on the ice at the aud today - both have spent the last couple of years in the n- h-l full-time with the vancouver canucks.
While it's a long season and one game isn't necessarily an indicator of sustained success - the team said today that it was good to get that first "w" right out of the gate.
Trent cull: i thought our team played good we had a decent start with our shots, a couple of things we probably could've done a little bit better in the first.
But ga few period, guys went out and played really well.
Got into a little bit of penalty trouble there in the third.
And they took advantage of the opportunities but it's nice to have that challenge to in the first game to be a buy a few and find a way to finish on the right end but still be in a pressure situation.
Kole lind: it's always good to start the season off with a win, i thoght the team came together really good especially going through a little adversity in the third.
We stuck with it.
It's not going to be pretty early in the season we're kind of getting into the swing of things now but it was a good win.
Zane mcintyre: we got down there but the team reacted and responded well in the second so i just had to do my part and make saves when i could and when we needed ta week so it's getting the win which was big.
We have five or six days off now we're just practicing, i shouldn't say off but we're just practicing so it's good to get a win and keep that momentum going instead of sitting on a loss for a week so it's been good to have that and obviously just like every game we just keep building and we just keep getting better the comets are back
