Rats-Penguins Game 2 Pre-Game

ALBANY --- The River Rats face a different goalie in net tonight in Game 2 of their East Division semifinal series with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
Goalie John Curry gets the nod to start tonight for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton as rookie goalie Brad Thiessen was recalled by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday.
Curry went 23-19-2 with a 2.87 goals against average in 46 appearances for Wilkes-Barre this season. The third-year pro is 2-1-1 with a 2.88 in four decisions versus Albany this campaign.
Thiessen, who made 34 saves in WBS's 4-3 loss to Albany in Game 1 on Wednesday, will back up Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 2 of Pittsburgh's quarterfinal playoff series against Ottawa tonight.
Justin Peters, who made 30 saves in Game 1 for Albany, will face Curry.
Also for the Rats, defenseman Brett Bellemore is in the lineup after he was a healthy scratch in Game 1.
Defenseman Zack FitzGerald and left wing Brad Herauf are again scratches for Albany.
