The facoff dots at Boston’s TD Banknorth Garden were painted incorrectly. The faceoff circles in the west end are 24 feet from the goal line instead of the regulation 20 feet.
â€œOf the many logistical tasks the Garden operations team is called upon to perform each season, painting and marking the ice sheet is one of the more routine and straightforward. Therefore, this oversight is simply an inexcusable and disappointing error for which we apologize to the Boston Bruins and the NHL at-large,â€ said TD Banknorth Garden president John Wentzell in a statement.
