Shooter's Comments: Sometimes the best shot isn't used because of deadlines. On Wednesday night, I covered the first and second period of the game and managed to be at the wrong end of the ice when the Komets scored a goal.
I edited and transmitted photos during the first part of the third inning to make deadlines, and then went back to cover the rest of the game. I was at the right end of the ice this time and got this shot of Kaleigh Schrock celebrating his goal.
I then quickly sent in this photo just in case I could still make deadline. I got back in time to shoot the last minute of the game and the celebration that followed as the Komets won the first series of the playoffs.
