Bad Paint Job

from the Boston Bruins,

The Boston Bruins announced today that the third period in tonight’s game against the Atlanta Thrashers will be split, with the teams switching ends at the first stoppage in play after the 10-minute mark of the period….

The change in format is occurring due to incorrect markings on the West End (visitors bench side) of the TD Banknorth Garden Ice. In the West End, the two face-off dots are 24 feet from the goal line - four feet longer than NHL specifications.  The corresponding face-off circles are also four feet further away from the goal line.
