The Albany River Rats lost to the Hershey Bears 4-3 in overtime last night as the Bears took a 1-0 lead in the series. Jerome Samson had two goals and Drayson Bowman added another which rounded out the scoring for the "Junior Canes."
Justin Peters was the MVP for Albany though as he stopped 44 of 48 shots on goal, some of them in spectacular fashion. The River Rats were outshot 11-3 in the overtime period, and 48 to 28 for the game. They will need to improve.
The teams renew their rivalry and battle again tonight starting at 5 p.m.
There are only two games in the NHL playoffs today as the Red Wings try to finish off the Coyotes and the Kings attempt to stay alive against Vancouver.
