saving face

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals was an intense 6-5 shootout win for the Blackhawks. With a lot more photographers in town for the finals, I was in a different position than we usually shoot from on the opposite side of the arena.

The angle worked out great though when Antti Niemi took a puck to the face in the third period, knocking his mask loose as he made the save to hold on for the win.
