One thing I've learned over the years regarding photo positions at sporting events is that you never know where the action is going to take place.
You can have a "great" position right in front of the net and nothing happens and other days you can have "poor" position in the middle of nowhere and the play of the game happens right in front of you and you're the only photographer around.
This week I had one of the desirable positions at Ottawa right at ice level with a hole cut in the glass. Well the boys were in a fightin mood and two of the best fights of the year were right in front of me.
I did the best I could.
