Penguins hold off Rats

The Albany River Rats' comeback bid came up short on Saturday night.
Stefan Chaput scored with 1:52 remaining in regulation, but Wilkes-Barre/Scranton held off Albany, 2-1 on Saturday at Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza.
Chaput tallied to foil the shutout bid of goalie John Curry (25 saves). Justin Peters stopped 29 of 31 shots faced for the Rats.
Wyatt Smith and Tyler Spurgeon each scored for Wilkes-Barre, which dealt Albany just its second loss in regulation over its past 12 games (9-2-1-0).
The two clubs will conclude their home-and-home series today as the Rats host the Penguins at 5.
