On a Friday night in April, I attended and shot a Syracuse Crunch hockey game with fellow photographer and instructor, Scott Thomas (http://www.sthomasphotos.com/). The night served two purposes: For me to practice some of my action/motion/sports photography and for Scott to test out my new camera as a possible replacement for his Nikon gear. I think the night was a success on both fronts, though I have to say that I could not even think fast enough to capture all the action! (Also, the players and fans are all insane!) :-)
Here are my shots, enjoy!

Sadly, the Syracuse Crunch lost the game that night, but it was a very interesting affair for me to watch and shoot!
