WENATCHEE — There was visible anguish on the bodies of the skaters in white and blue Saturday at the Town Toyota Center.

The line of forwards and blueliners on the ice hunched over on their skates as if they’d absorbed a seismic blow to the stomach —in a way, they had — and forward Parker Tuomie laid facedown on the ice seconds after the fate-sealing game-winning goal was launched into the back of the defending team’s net. Given the way Wenatchee responded to suffering the 3-2 overtime loss against the Fairbanks Ice Dogs, you would think they were the heavily favored No. 1 seed suffering an upset at the hands of a No. 3 Cinderella that had already vastly exceeded its expectations, and not the other way around.
