Miami (Ohio) vs UNH The #1 Miami (Ohio) RedHawks played the first of two games against the UNH Wildcats on Friday night. The teams were tied 2-2 after the first period but Miami broke it open scoring four unanswered goals in the second period enroute to a 6-3 victory over the Wildcats. (Click on the pictures to see more goalie photos from the game.) Goalie Cody Reichard, Miami (Ohio) Sophomore goalie Cody Reichard helped his team notch their third win of the season stopping 15 of 18 shots on goal. Goalie Brian Foster, UNH Brian Foster started the game and played the first two periods stopping 20 of 26 shots.  He was replaced by Matt DiGirolamo in the third period. Photo Tip: Camera set up for hockey Hockey rinks are typically dark places to shoot in unless you’re in a college or pro rink. They usually require a camera that has an ISO of 1600 or higher and a lens capable of  f2.8 or faster. The first thing I do when I get to a rink after I set a custom white balance is look at the lighting and see if the rink in evenly lit or not. This will determine how I set the camera up. Look at the lights and see if there are some that look dull or have a pinkish color to them. Also, check...

Shots on Goal:Goalie Photography

UNH vs Acadia The Acadia Axemen traveled down from Nova Scotia to Durham, New Hampshire to take on the UNH Wildcats in a preseason scrimmage this past Saturday. UNH looked to be in mid season form already with an 8-1 win. Here’s some of my favorite shots from the game. Goalie Michael Chaisson, Acadia The sophomore goalie from Cole Harbour, NS played the first 2 periods and stopped 19 of 25 shots. The first picture, my favorite of the night, reminds me of the old days in the Boston Garden. When the weather turned humid a fog would develop on the ice creating  a surreal effect during the game. This is just what happened during the second period of the game.

Acadia’s Michael Chaisson denies UNH with a nice pad save. Goalie Brian Foster, UNH Brian Foster, last years most valuable player for the Wildcats, was up to the task of keeping the puck out of the net for UNH. During his 49 minutes of play he stopped 14 of 15 shots on goal by the Axemen. Acadia’s Jonathan Laberge unsuccesfully tries to deflect the puck past Brian...

Shots on Goal: Boston Bruins Practice Photos

In a previous post I explained why I was not able to shoot in the TD Bank Garden with my lens of choice, the 70-200mm f2.8. This was because of the camera policy at the Garden.  They won’t allow a lens longer than 3 inches in length.  So a few days later I took a ride down to the Bruins normal training facility, Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Ma. They have no camera policy and had no problem with me shooting against the glass. So with my favorite lens in hand I was able to shoot to my hearts content. I was able to get some action shots of Tim Thomas, Dany Sabourin, Matt Dalton and Michael Hutchinson. (Click on one of the images to get a slideshow of all seven) Goalie Tim Thomas Goalie Dany Sabourin Goalie Matt Dalton Goalie Michael...

Shots on Goal: Bruins Preseason Goalie Masks

With seven goalies invited to the Boston Bruins training camp this season there was ample opportunity to get a few good shots of some masks.  Manny Fernandez is no longer sharing goaltending duties with Tim Thomas, so competition was wide open for a backup goaltender. Some of this years invitees that I shot were Dany Sabourin, Adam Courchaine, Michael Hutchinson and of course Tim Thomas. Dany Sabourin Dany had a good preseason and was in the running for backup goalie with Tuukka Rask but was recently sent to the Bruins AHL affiliate,  Providence Bruins. Matt Dalton Matt has also been assigned to the Providence Bruins. Michael Hutchinson Michael was returned to his junior team on 9/20/09 Tim Thomas As training camp winds down it appears Tuukka Rask will be the backup to Tim Thomas. I was unable to get a good close up of Tuukka’s mask so if any of our readers have a good shot, please feel free to send it in.  We’d love to publish that and any other goalie mask you might...
