WENATCHEE — Wenatchee center Joe Sullivan ended up on the bottom of an icy dog pile after a thrilling 4-3 overtime win over the Kenai River Brown Bears on Thursday at Town Toyota Center.
Seconds before, he netted his only score of the night, a game-winning overtime goal which completed a furious come-from-behind Wild win. The pass from fellow center Max McHugh crossed the Brown Bears’ goal and fell gracefully into Sullivan’s possession. Sullivan ripped a forehand shot to secure the win with 3:11 left in the extra period. It was Wenatchee’s third unanswered goal of the night and its second consecutive contest decided after the third period.
