Sabres experiment with blue ice surface

By JOHN WAWROW, AP Sports Writer
March 15, 2005
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- If the ice is colored a soft shade of blue, what does that make hockey's blue lines? Orange of course.

Don't adjust your TV sets -- the Buffalo Sabres are using Rochester, their AHL farm club, to try out a new colored ice surface that could become the standard once the NHL resumes playing.

The first test comes Sunday, when Rochester plays Cleveland at Buffalo.

How about having the bowling balls pound your face into the air bags?

"...the news reports stated that they were clean balls, though..."
