Stealthy Play

"Marcus Johansson #90 of the Washington Capitals takes a high-stick to the face from Andrew MacDonald #47 of the Philadelphia Flyers during the first period in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Wells Fargo Center on April 24, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania."

Everyone near and on the ice needs to have quick reflexes.

From the goalie tracking a fast moving puck to make a save, to the star of the game lining up the game-winning shot. But even those such as officials and photographers need to have quick response times.

The other night as the Washington Capitals were trying to close out the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Philadelphia Flyers reflexes came into play.

Nothing is routine in the playoffs, but what seemed like a simple face-off turned into a high-stick penalty. A quick reaction to turn the camera resulted in documented said play.

One of my favorite images from the game I thought it symbolized the series where the Capitals and Flyers put everything on the line in order to advance.
