Boston Bruins Notes, Quotes
--The teams changed ends midway through the third period Saturday night after it was discovered pre-game that the faceoff dots at one end of the TD Banknorth Garden were four feet farther from the net than they were supposed to be. (By splitting the third period, each team got 30 minutes on that side of the rink for the game.) It had been that way from the home opener on Oct. 20 and will be fixed in time for the next home game, Saturday night. Both teams downplayed the effect of the misplaced dots.

--The Bruins ended a three-game losing streak and scored their first home win in three tries with Saturday night's 5-4 decision over Atlanta.

--The B's now face three games in four nights in western Canada, playing Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary.

--The Bruins didn't face Edmonton last year and are 2-0 there since 2000-01.

--Boston gave up three power play goals in four tries Saturday night and has yielded five PPGs in the last two games. "It's very frustrating," said B's coach Claude Julien. "We can definitely be better."

--The Bruins went 2-for-5 on their own power plays Saturday night.

--Boston just played four games in six nights and that will become seven games in 11 nights by the end of this trip.

--Milan Lucic's hat trick Saturday was the club's first since Phil Kessel did it last Oct. 12 at Los Angelese (the club's only hat of last season).

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's like going from ordinary TV to high-definition TV. It's good to be out there when your vision's clear." -- Bruins LW Milan Lucic, after scoring a hat trick in his second game wearing contact lenses.
