Last nite's ABC hockey game, did it start out "narrow" everywhere?

    Game 4 of the Stanley Cup. I turned it on and it started out not in hi-def, with black bars on the sides, SD. I watched something else and went back just as the 3rd period started and it was in hi-def. Is my local having trouble remembering to flip a switch or was last night's goof national?

    It started out SD with bars on the side here also. I have Comcast HD out of Boston. I had to leave to go placate my mother's ongoing fear about gas fireplaces and by the time I made it to her house it was switched to HD. Must have been an ABC screw up.

    It was narrow in the NY-NJ area. I thought they weren't showing it in HD at all, so I stopped recording and erased all the files. I wasn't interested in the game, but I did want to record it as a tech demo for one of my hockey fan friends.
