Things opened slowly in the first period. The excitement of the opening frame was a fight between Hamilton forward Jordan Owens and Utica forward David Pacan. Owens dropped Comets forward Alex Friesen with a big hit at the Utica blueline before Pacan stepped in looking to settle the score. After one, the two teams were scoreless.
