On Sunday afternoon, the Albany River Rats took a commanding 3-0 series lead in their Calder Cup playoff series against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Baby Penguins with a 2-1 win in Wilkes-Barre. Rats leading scorer Jerome Samson was shut down in the first two games of this series, but he potted the game-winner at 5:45 of the third.
The game was scoreless through the first 40 minutes, but Mike Angelidis got the Rats on the board early in the third, and Samson followed a couple of minutes later.
Game four will be Monday night in Wilkes-Barre at 7:05, when the Rats will have a chance to break out their brooms for a season sweep. The River Rats haven’t won a playoff series since 1998, when they advanced to the Calder Cup semifinals.
