Wild beat Spruce Kings in shootout to start road trip


The Wenatchee Wild started off a three-game road trip north of the border on a good note last night, picking up a 3-2 shootout win at Prince George. Tyler Young got Wenatchee on the board first in the 4th minute of the second period. Luke Ormsby gave the Wild a 2-nothing lead wit his 10th goal of the season in the third period. But Wenatchee couldn’t hold the lead. Through four minutes of overtime, the game would be decided in a shootout.
