Monsters take series lead against Wild

The Fresno (Calif.) Monsters defeated the Wenatchee (Wash.) Wild 2-1 in overtime to take a 2-1 series lead on Wednesday night in Fresno in the first round of the North American Hockey League West division playoffs.

The win and series is significant because the winner faces the winner of the Fairbanks and Kenai River series, which is currently tied 1-1. Fresno is considered the underdog with a fourth-seed ranking, while Wenatchee is the top seed from the division.

If Fresno can beat Wenatchee tonight in Fresno, the Monsters will win the series. The Brown Bears will continue their series against the Ice Dogs on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Soldotna Sports Center.

Wenatchee outshot Fresno 38-28 on Wednesday night, but after the two teams couldn’t decide a winner at the end of regulation, it was Fresno’s Matt Salituro netting the gamewinner 7 minutes, 52 seconds into the extra period.
