Yelnats Cup Playoffs: Recap for 04-16-2011


The big, bad Bruins sure chose the wrong time to become the sick, sad Bruins. Ugh.

4 games tonight, but I won't be able to give full recaps tonight, just way too busy with a project and I've got an exam tomorrow. That's right, weekend exams. Oh, the joyous life of a University student.

I will give you the game summaries for each game and I'll try to make it up to you guys later on!
