Friday night I was at Hovet and photographed my first match of 2013. Not only my first match of 2013, but also the first game I photographed in well over a month. I had been sick with a cold for most of the week but I was real anxious to get out there and photograph again.
The game started out pretty dull and play seemed to be continuously stopping. The visitors took the lead late in the first period and maintained their 1-0 lead until the third period. In the third period everything changed and Djurgården made a strong comeback scoring 6 goals against an opponent who was left asking themselves what happened? I got pretty lucky in that I switched to the other side of the rink for the third period and was on Djurgården’s attacking side. I didn’t even do it thinking they were going to turn things around, I kind of expected them to lose. I did it to snap so shots of Karlskoga’s bench and coach.
Anyhow it was great to get back into the swing of things. The next day I had photographs from this match published in both Aftonbladet and Karlskoga Tidning. As always you can find these photographs and many more exclusively through Pic-Agency.
