Herauf lifts Rats past Pirates

The River Rats turned to a new source of scoring on Friday night.
Brad Herauf broke a 2-2 tie midway through the third period and Chris Terry added an empty-net goal to spark Albany to a 4-2 triumph over the Portland Pirates on Friday night at the Cumberland County Civic Center.
The game winner was just the fourth goal of the season for Herauf, a regular on the Rats’ checking line.
Drayson Bowman and Matthew Pistilli also scored for the River Rats (31-23-3-3) and Jacob Micflikier chipped in with two assists as Albany (31-23-3-3) snapped Portland’s eight-game home winning streak.
Goalie Justin Peters made 26 saves to earn the win. Jhonas Enroth stopped 22 of 235 shots faced for Portland (33-18-5-3).
The River Rats return to action tonight in Manchester at 7 and returns to play at Portland again on Sunday.
