I am a ridiculous human being.
Part of the learning process of sports photography is learning how to weed out all but the best pictures. Unfortunately, I haven’t reached that skill-level plateau yet, so today I bring you…exactly 100 photos and a short practice report, courtesy of Steph‘s camera once again (give her a follow on twitter!)
Wideman and Stuart were the first two out on the ice, and actually interacted with the fans hanging out early; Wideman came over and had a conversation with one of them. The rest of the team came out and quickly transitioned from warmups into powerplay and basic scrimmage drills. It was a fairly simple practice, and the lines looked the same as usual. Everyone practiced.
The highlight of the day was the team’s attitude, not the skill-level of the drills done. Everyone was laughing; that key team unity we saw in Sunday’s Rangers game hasn’t dissipated. A number of guys stuck around after practice was “officially” over to work on shooting drills and just mess around.
