On Wednesday NHL season started for the Calgary Flames when they played against Vancouver Canucks. I was at the game, photographing it for USA TODAY Sports.

For the first period I went to the ice level. This year we finally got some photo holes in the glass, so it will be much better to shoot from the ice level!

Vancouver scored first and I was pretty happy that it happened on my side of the ring, this way I could get a nice celebration shot :)

After transmitting some images from the first period in the media room I headed up to the concourse level to photograph from a higher position.

By the look of the fans covering their ears, the drum was a bit too loud :)

The game ended with a pretty nice empty net goal by Henrik Sedin.
