The Blackhawks shot down the Redwings last night and they knocked the dust off of my wings. It has been months since I shot a NHL game and I was happy to find that shooting hockey was like riding a bicycle. I was telling another photographer last night that it took me a few years to figure out how to shoot the game. Once I figured out it was like shooting soccer, but you follow the puck and you follow from time to time where the puck was going, it got a lot easier.
Its been called the most exciting two minutes in sports. For me and my colleagues its about three days of work leading up to three seconds of action as we capture the finish of the Kentucky Derby from every angle.
