In the first period, WHL linesman Anthony Guzzo collides with Spokane Chief Jeremy Mcintosh (4) and Vancouver’s Austin Vetterl (24) Saturday in the Spokane Arena.

This was my first hockey game of the season that I’ve shot. I was a little rusty at the trigger, but I’m glad  I was able to get this snap of the linesman ref getting upended by players. I don’t think in all my years of shooting the Spokane Chiefs have I captured a photo like this. Hockey snaps all kind of look the same to me. Getting a different kind of peak-action moment was a bonus, plus I love the reaction of the women behind the glass . Nikon D3s, Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 Colin Mulvany/The Spokesman-Review

Almost missed this shot in my edit tonight during a Spokane Chiefs vs. Portland Winterhawks game in Spokane. I’m happy anytime I can get a interesting and different snap during a hockey game.

Sometimes shooting hockey is  like being at a boxing match. This fight at the end of the Spokane Chiefs vs. the Tri-City Americans match was brutal to watch. As my motor-drive blazed away at nine-frames-per-second, the crowd cheered them on. Shooting a hockey fight might seem like it would be easy, but if you want to get that boxing like jab to the jaw, with the mouth guard and sweat flying out, it’s, well, more luck than talent. I went with the beat down photo for the newspaper. Someone at the Chief’s main office bought two 8X10 reprints today to give to  player Darren Kramer.
