"In your life!" indeed.
I came across a hockey card recently that made me think about that putt. About how unlikely the logo would line up ever so perfectly. A thousand tries and you couldn't recreate it.
#223 Dominic Roussel
This picture is definitely a one in a million shot. Check out the Flyers logo on the puck as it sits propped up on Dominic's glove.
And Roussel's eyes are just piercing it as he remains concentrated (obviously to balance it as long as possible). In fact, it doesn't even look like he's focused on the puck.....it looks like he's posing for the camera.
You gotta think that this photo was used solely because of the puck. It's an otherwise bland photo.
But that puck! In your life!
It just goes to show that a split second can really make the difference between a regular, everyday photo and a pretty spectacular shot.
