Wild evens series with Caps

That after a split in the first two games over the weekend at the Town Toyota Center. In Game 1 Friday night, the Capitals scored first and then Wenatchee tied it. Then C-V scored again, and again, the Wild countered to tie it. But it was third goal in the third period by the Capitals that Wenatchee could not answer in a 3-2 victory by the visitors.

In Game 2 Saturday night, Matt Gosiewski scored two first period goals to stake the Wild to a 2-nil lead heading into the first intermission and electrifying the over 2,000 fans at the Town Toyota Center.

But Cowichan Valley would not go softly into the night as the Caps roared back to tie it with two, second period goals. It would be all Wenatchee from there, however, as the Wild scored three to lead at the second intermission 5-2 and won 6-3 to even the series at a game apiece.
