Wilkes-Barre foils Albany again

For the second time in two nights, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins spoiled a comeback bid by the Albany River Rats.
Mark Letestu scored twice and assisted on Nick Johnson's game-winning goal and the Penguins held off the River Rats, 3-2 on Sunday.
Wilkes-Barre, which edged Albany, 2-1 in Pennsylvania on Saturday, swept the holiday weekend home-and-home series.
Mike Angelidis scored in the first period for the Rats and rookie Chris Terry tallied in the third to draw Albany within 3-2.
Adam Berkhoel finished with 24 saves for the Penguins while Justin Peters stopped 34 of 37 shots for Albany.
Earlier, forward Matthew Pistilli was reassigned by Albany to Florida of the ECHL.
The Rats return to action with a home-and-home series with Adirondack, hosting the Phantoms on Wednesday at 7 p.m. and play at Adirondack on Thursday in a 3 p.m. New Year's Eve start.
