Rodney lifts Rats past Pens in SO

ALBANY — This time, the River Rats turned the tables on the Penguins in the shootout.
Left wing Drayson Bowman and Bryan Rodney each scored in the shootout to lift Albany past Wilkes-Barre, 5-4 on Saturday in an American Hockey League game before a turnout of 5,657 at Times Union Center.
Just three days before, the Penguins edged the River Rats in a shootout in a 4-3 decision in Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.
In this meeting, after Tim Wallace scored the tying goal for the Penguins with 55 seconds remaining in regulation, Bowman scored in the third round of the shootout and Rodney tallied in the final round to edge out Wilkes-Barre 2-1 in the shootout to clinch the victory.
Left wing Jacob Micflikier scored two goals for the Rats and center Nick Dodge contributed a goal and an assist.
Goalie Mike Morrison made 29 saves to earn the win for Albany (36-24-3-5).
Morrison got the start a day after he was credited with the victory on Friday at Rochester in relief of goalie Justin Pogge after Pogge left the game with a lower-body injury.
Earlier in the day, right wing Jerome Samson was summoned by the Carolina Hurricanes for his second NHL recall.
John Curry finished with 15 saves for the Penguins (33-29-1-3).
