Michael Ryan had three goals and two assists Friday, powering the Albany River Rats to a 7-1 AHL victory over the Manchester Monarchs at Verizon Wireless Arena.

Ryan assisted on goals by Jakub Petuzalek in the first period and Mark Flood in the second. Ryan then scored the Rats’ final three goals – a power-play tally in the second period, and two-even-strength ones in the third.

The Rats took a 3-0 lead in the first period on goals by Pat Dwyer, Petuzalek and Jerome Sansom.

It’s the second straight Friday in which the Rats have had an offensive explosion. They scored eight goals against Norfolk last week.

The Rats host the Binghamton Senators at the Times Union Center tonight at 7.
