Who Needs a GoPro? – NHL Referee Camera Is Where Its At!
I found this post at www.VelcroGloves.com, Now this is awesome! GoPro is stepping up its game!
If you’ve ever wondered what the #nhl game you’re watching looks like from ice level, for select games this season, you’re going to find out.
A little more than a week ago, it was revealed that the NHL was patnering with GoPro to mount cameras on referees’ helmets for various games this season. For the league’s opening weekend, officials wore cameras on their helmets for the two Canadian broadcasts on Sportsnet Wednesday night. The results were pretty spectacular.
The network was able to get the footage from the cameras for the live broadcast, sometimes even switching during a play to the #referee‘s perspective. As you’d expect it’s incredibly unique.

Great Image of the Thrill of Win vs Sadness of Loss
by: Corey Geier
Amazing image that really displays the agony of defeat vs the rush from a great win. This was take from Boston Bruins vs Toronto Maple Leafs Game 7 Overtime game May 13th 2013. The Boston Bruins took on the Toronto Maple Leafs in a Game 7 playoff match up for the ages. Bruins trailed 4-1 midway through the third period, and many people thought the game was over. Bruins score to make it 4-2. Bruins then pulled the goalie and Patrice Bergeron was the man of the night as he tied the game and also won it in OT for Boston. It was a recorded setter also, as no team has ever came back from being 3 goals down in game 7. Not to mention Toronto had a 3-1 series lead at one time.
This picture is a great example of the feeling of victory and the feeling of loss all in one, with the goalie laying on the ice while the rest celebrate. I think this is a great picture and you can really see both sides of the highs and lows of sports.
