I’m sure I am not alone when I say the only negative about the Devils move to the Prudential Center meant no more open practices.
Even with the changes to South Mountain, it was still nice to go up there and watch the team practice. It just helped further a fans devotion to the team.
Today I found myself with a day off, so despite the crummy weather, I decided to go up to Newark and take some photos of The Rock.
I am an amateur photographer and I wanted to try out some new techniques I have been working on. I took my photos and decided to walk around the arena a little and see what other shots I could get when I discovered a slight fold in one of the curtains that prevent outsiders from seeing the practice rink.
At first, I just saw a Zamboni go by (on this, what would have been Frank Zamboni’s 112th birthday – If you haven’t check out the Google Doodle today, it’s a fun Zamboni game). Seeing the Zamboni, I thought practice day was complete, so I went about my day.
I was driving out of the city and I drove by for one last look. As I was passing by, I caught a glimpse of what appeared to be a player streaking down the ice. I parked the car in a hurry, grabbed my Nikon Coolpix P7000 (I had a Canon 10D with me as well, but I felt it would be too bulky for this stealth mission) and back to the window I went.
Here are some of the pictures I was able to get:

Those were just some of the shots I got.
Let me know what you think.
