No Pushing

"Washington Capitals and Montreal Canadiens players push one another during the third period during an NHL game at the Verizon Center on November 29, 2013 in Washington, DC."

I love clean backgrounds - and for hockey - direct overhead is the golden ticket to finding one.

As in most professional sports - advertising is prominent around the arena, stadium. Hockey is no different. Promotion is a good thing for most, but visually in pictures, a lot of the time they're distracting to the main action, subject.

The good thing about hockey is there are no advertisements on the ice itself. So putting a remote on the catwalk, shooting directly overhead the net always provides a nice clean backdrop.

Between this above scuffle, and then game-winning goal, the remote came away with a few more than usual frames - which is always a nice addition to the main collection of images.
