New Year's Eve @ Conseco

I've always had a love/hate relationship with shooting Ice games in Conseco Fieldhouse. On one hand, the arena is first-class. Maybe not an NHL-caliber venue, but at least good enough for AHL or IHL. On the other hand, the place is just massive and there's no easy way to get around, so shooting a game there is three hours of climbing stairs and waiting for elevators and running down long underground tunnels.

Still, the lighting is superb once you're tied into the big strobes and have figured out where the fall-off areas are (the regular lights are surprisingly yellow), and as I said, the place is just beautiful.

This is a shot of Sebastian Geoffrion's first fight of the night. He ended up with two fights on the evening.
