I was really hoping this one would be on Brandon radio but I was wrong.... I guess I will have to wait for updates or a summary later.
Edit (1): I see that Bruce Luebke twitters and has updated the score 2-1 Pats after 1. Leffler and Delahey for the Pats and Hall for Brandon. Shots 8-8.
Edit (2): 3-2 Brandon after 2.
Edit (3): 3-3 heading to OT. Davidson tied it up.
Edit (4): Pats lose 4-3 in a shootout.
