Free Shave

"Nicklas Backstrom #19 of the Washington Capitals crashes to the ice after colliding with Brad Richardson #15 of the Arizona Coyotes during the third period at Capital One Arena on November 6, 2017 in Washington, DC."

Documenting hockey at any level is always a lot of fun - but can be frustrating as well.

With more than ten athletes, including goalies, continually crossing paths and then adding some referees - the view can be obstructed a lot of the time.

Whether a player is shooting, celebrating or taking a big check, there is always hope that it will be a clear line of sight.

The other night as the Arizona Coyotes took on the Washington Capitals I was fortunate to never really be blocked too many times, which is rare.

In the third period, Nicklas Backstrom crashed to the ice after a collision. While unable to see the initial flying through the air, which may or may not have been a better image, I loved the odd moment of him getting a free face shave from the ice.

It's often this different moments that help draw a viewer in and want to see more of the storytelling images of the night.
