At 3:18 of the first period in the Bruins/Kings game play was stopped in a neutral zone face-off in front of the Boston bench. When play resumed the clock was not started with the puck drop, it started 1 second prior to a whistle and then was stopped when the play was blown dead. The official timekeeper removed 6 seconds from the clock to account for the missed time.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
