Photo of the Week #222
My favorite photo I took this past week is of my close encounter with New York Ranger Mats Zuccarello throwing all of his 5’7″ body into Chicago Blackhawk Marcus Krüger at Madison Square Garden. I was shooting the hockey game through that hole you see in the glass, but pulled back just in time to save my lens and get this cool perspective.
The game was preseason in name only, as the Rangers (runners-up in the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals) played aggressively against the 2013 Stanley Cup champs, throwing plenty of checks and tying the game with 4:28 left in the third period before winning it, 3-2, in a 9-round shootout.
Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, Rokinon 14mm f2.8 (manual focus!) lens @ f4, 1/2000th, ISO 5000.
