Blocking the Puck

Blocking the Puck

Sometimes you just get lucky. I took this picture from the top row of seats, center ice of the main rink at the Independence Events Center. When the opposing team starts moving toward the goal, I frame in on the goal tender and watch for his reaction to an incoming shot. I do not use motor drive. I just press the shutter manually a couple of times and see what happens. I think it is cool that the puck is in position to be a mirror image of the MAHSHL emblem on the goalies jersey. And you can almost read it.
