      Thanks, everyone! I got a little lucky with the timing. It was shot with a D200 and Tokina 80-400mm from Section 420. I've managed to take a few good pics this season, but this one is something special.

      Beautiful shot!

      I love my seats in 426, but it doesn't lend itself to angles as nice as yours.

      Might be the best thing I've ever seen on Flickr, though I'm a bit biased. I was sitting on the other end of the ice, and all I could see was Crosby with the puck, a virtually empty net - but no goal. Amazing.

      Talk about the photo of the series! Almost makes me consider switching seats to get a better angle on the net. Wish they'd replayed this one a few more times on the Jumbotron. Thanks for sharing - the rest of your shots are great too!
