Wild down Caps in Game 4

Wenatchee got on the board first less than two minutes into the first period as PJ Fletcher scored his fourth goal of the playoffs to make it 1-nothing.
The Wild scored the only goal in the second period at the 9:28 mark by Murphy Stratton to make it 2-nil heading into the third. Even though the Capitals got a goal from Brady Lynn in the final frame, Blake Bargar and Marko Reifenberger made sure the series would be tied headed back to Wenatchee for tomorrow night.
