3 Shots of the Game - Stars vs Rampage

The Texas Stars came away with a 4-3 win again rivals San Antonio Rampage at the Cedar Park Center last night. The Stars had a commanding 3-0 lead in the first period. The Rampage would not go down without a good fight and the gap was closed by two Rampage goals in the second. Ultimately the Stars held their lead in the hard hitting game in spite of a fierce effort the Rampage late in the third period. In the photography department I tried to get more close-up shots of the action in the corners. These are always tricky to pull off since the guys move so fast, leaving little time to acquire focus and get a few shots off before the players slam into the glass. The first shot is Esa Lindell battling to get to the puck in the Stars' corner in the first period. The second shot is Brendan Ranford chasing down former Texas Star Hubert Labrie. The third shot is Travis Morin pulling some defensive duty late in the third period.
