Rats-Penguins Game 3 Pre-Game

The River Rats enter Game 3 of their East Division semifinal series hoping to end Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's hex at home.
Not only has Albany lost all four regular-season games at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in 2009-10, the Penguins have won six of their past seven Calder Cup playoff games on home ice.
Wilkes-Barre also finished the regular season with points in 13 of their past 14 home games.
Goalie Justin Peters again gets the start for Albany, which won the first two games of the series, 4-3 and 3-2, at home and is in quest of winning its first playoff series since 1998. John Curry, who took the loss in Game 2, gets the start in goal for WBS.
The Rats scratches remained the same from Game 2, with defensemen Zack Fitzgerald, Jonathan Paiement and Kyle Lawson again sitting out, along with left wing Brad Herauf.
Defenseman Ben Lovejoy was called up by the Pittsburgh Penguins, and defender Alex Grant will take his place in the lineup.
