I got caught up in all the action tonight. There are definitely pros and cons to being a fan and a photographer. Sometimes it’s hard not to forget that you’re working the game and not just watching it. Standing up and cheering sometimes reminds you that the super-heavy paperweight around your neck is is a camera–but I am a professional and remain unbiased (yeah, right). I wandered down to the players bench with 2:00 minutes left in order to get on the field for the victory lap right after the game.

Well, in these last two minutes there was a fight on the field, there were a couple of penalties, and a lot of excitement on the bench. I poked my lens out onto the bench a few times and captured some great shots of the players and coaches, including the top photo of Derek Malawsky during a record breaking game.

I also snapped the photo of Tyler Codron (middle) while he was cooling down in the locker room hallway after his fight with Kyle Hartzell. For a few seconds, I thought he was going to continue the fight with me!

After the game, I scrambled over to the press room to catch the tail end of the post game conference. And then, it was back home for 4 hours of photo processing and uploading.
