It's been 21 years since the Amerks have played a team from Utica. It's felt like 21 years between games after an 8-1 season opening loss to Grand Rapids. In reality, it's been seven days since Rochester's worst loss to begin a season. A long week to prepare for Utica's return to the AHL.

The Amerks will hosts the Utica Comets, who are making their league debut Friday. They are the Vancouver Canucks newest affiliate. The Amerks and Comets will meet ten times this seasons.

Tough to gameplan for a new team, so Rochester is working on the blunder made in that rough loss last week.

The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. at Blue Cross Arena.
