I am in the press area of the hockey arena and just cranked out my edits for USA Hockey just in time to catch the next game, which should be a really good one. Canada against Russia. That means that 4 of the San Jose Sharks players, playing for Canada, will be going up against their own goalie, Evgeni Noboklov, who is playing for Russia.
In the mean time, here are some of the images from the USA vs. Switzerland game which just completed about 2 hours ago.
I love this shot with the spray coming off of Jamie Langenbrunner's skate as he crashed the net. The guy from Sports Illustrated just looked over my shoulder and said "nice shot!"
So...this may not qualify as an action shot in the game of hockey, but I cracked up when I reviewed my images in the camera and saw that I captured the exact moment that Jonas Hiller spit out some water. Funny huh?
