February 16, 2011 - Penguins at Avalanche

No captains, no stars (Jordan Staal?), still a decent game. Av's still can't win one and have now lost nine straight. Pens fans may have outnumbered Av's fans, but all were pretty loud.

Fans: React.

Fleury: Pouvoir.

Stastny: focus.

Wilson: beatdown.

February 3, 2011 - Wild at Avalanche

The Wild aren't as boring a team as they were a year ago. I saw a several very impressive would-be assists that Andy was able to block. Unfortunately, the 2-0 hole the Av's dug themselves into in the first two minutes of the game, including Burnett's 1st of 2 on the night, above, proved insurmountable.

Koivu nearly has Andy and Stastny beat.

The first time I've seen Yip drop the gloves. This one I saw coming, and I have another shot where all four gloves are in the air at the same time.

January 30, 2011 - Armstrong's 2nd birthday

Every few months I'll get asked by a buddy to photograph his young son, who was born in Haiti. Armstrong didn't seem to fully grasp that this big gathering was all for him, until the lights went out at the end and everyone sang to him. I battled some bad light and some distracting elements, but that kid's eyes and expressions make my job pretty easy.
