For the first time this season, I decided to forego the Tribune’s ice level position and shoot the Blackhawks’ game from the 200 level.
It is much easier to follow the action from up above although sometimes you get blocked by an enthusiastic fan or, like today, a little girl wearing a two foot high foam cowboy hat.
I love the action along the boards and the looks on the fans’ faces.
I thought this traumatized family reacting to Martin Havlat being checked into the glass was pretty classic.
NOTE- This image appeared in my home-delivered Tribune this morning with the fans cropped out leaving only the two players on the left. Ugh!
