Shots on Goal:Goalie Photography-2010 Boston Bruins Practice

With September quickly coming to an end, it’s time to start thinking about shooting indoors again. I couldn’t think of a better place to get ready for the upcoming season than a Boston Bruins practice at the TD Garden.

This years camp has six goalies on the roster; Incumbents Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas along with Matt Dalton, Mike Hutchinson, Adam Courchaine and Nolan Schaefer. (Note: both Hutchinson and Courchaine were cut this morning and assigned to the Providence Bruins)

The first group on the ice at 10 consisted of Rask, Dalton and Hutchinson. All looked sharp while receiving equal time in net.

The second group took to the ice at 12:30 and consisted of Schaefer and Courchaine. Tim Thomas did not dress for the practice. This was by far the most colorful group as can be seen in their pads. I quickly became a fan of Schaefer’s all black pads.

I hope everyone will enjoy the this years photos as I’ll have more Bruins coverage along with UNH Men’s and Women’s hockey and this years edition of the Manchester Monarchs.

    Is Dalton still using a right handed stick?

    Love the pictures! It took a few looks for the all black pads to grow on me, the trend right now is definitely all WHITE so it is strange to see that.
