Strange UA Flight

If you look at the bottom it says that tonight UA is flying a 757 to LGA from ALB.
Why would a UA 757 be in ALB?

I believe if you look again you will see the flight is scheduled for ALB to LGA. It appears the flight from ORD diversion to ALB from the original planned destination of LGA. Perhaps the plane had an issue but looking at the holding patterns on the map maybe there was weather in the NYC metro area and they had to divert. Now they are just getting the plane beck to LGA to place it for its next destination.
