| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · NHL - Buffalo Sabres vs. Los Angeles - Dec. 19th, 2008 |
I shot my first NHL game recently. A special thanks to the Sabres photographers for the warm hospitality.
This was the first time, I was able to shoot through a photo hole, and what a huge difference it makes. Also, it's the really first time, I was able to shoot my D300 at 8 fps. I usually never shoot in burst because of my strobes. It was fun.
Buffalo won the game 5-0.
it was a rough drive because of the snow storm, but all-in-all a lot of fun. The weather made for a very stressful and long day. But I made it to Buffalo and home safe.
All shots, Nikon D300, ISO 1600, 1/500 f/2.8
HSBC Arena, very nice building, very impressive. It was my first time in the building.
#8 Rookie Drew Doughty, during warm up
#35 Jason LaBarbera, with maybe the coolest goalie helmet ever. James Hetfield of Metallica on the side, along with what looks like Gene Simmons of Kiss.
#41 Raitis Ivanans of the Los Angeles Kings, chases #44 Andrej Sekera of the Buffalo Sabres around the net.
#8 Rookie Defenceman and Guelph Storm Alumni Drew Doughty
#11 Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings, #22 Adam Mair of the Buffalo Sabres
#21 Denis Gauthier of the Los Angeles Kings gives a solid punch to #36 Patrick Paetsch to drop him to the ice. Paetsch curls up into the fetal position to avoid more of a betting. Gauthier sat their for a second for Paetsch to retaliate, but never did. Gauthier shook his head in disbelieve as he was carted off to the penalty box for a 4 minute roughing penalty.
#26 Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres. Currently in 2nd place in the NHL with 25 goals.
#35 Jason LaBarbera of the Los Angeles Kings
Rookie Right Winger #17 Wayne Simmonds of the Los Angeles Kings tries to get the puck off #34 Chris Butler.
Thanks for looking
