This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


The Utica Comets scored three times in the opening period on Sunday to take an early 3-1 lead and the  Grand Rapids Griffins couldn't over-come Utica goalie Jacob Markstrom enough to come back as the Comets held on for a 3-2 win over the Griffins in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals at Van Andel Arena.
Now up 3-2 in the best-of-seven series, the Comets will host Game 6 and, if necessary, Game 7 this Tuesday and Wednesday at the Utica Memorial Auditorium at 7 p.m. each night. Grand Rapids is 3-0 this postseason and 5-1 all time under coach Jeff Blashill when facing elimination.
