UTICA, N.Y. - Patrick Mullen scored twice as the Utica Comets defeated the Abbotsford Heat 4-2 in American Hockey League play Wednesday.

Braden Lamb and Brett Olson replied for Western Conference-leading Abbotsford (20-8-2).

The Comets were outshot 8-3 in the third period but still managed a short-handed goal by Biega into an empty net at 19:02.

Joacim Eriksson stopped 26 shots for Utica, while the Heat's Joni Orti was pulled after allowing two goals on nine shots. Joey MacDonald took over and allowed one goal on 18 shots.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
