Michigan State at Penn State hockey

Penn State hockey had an intense series with Michigan State this weekend at Pegula Ice Arena.  Friday nights game went into a shoot out, the first I have covered.  After confusion on which end each team would shoot on I settled to photograph the Penn State players as they skated towards me, and use a long lens across the ice as the goalie made saves to the cheers of the student section.  After seven rounds the Spartans got the win.

Boston College at Penn State Hockey

Tonight’s hockey game was full of intensity after Boston College crushed Penn State less than a month ago.   In addition it was THON night at the game with local THON families being introduced.  And the most memorable moment of the night came unexpectedly when player David Glen received a standing ovation from the crowd for taking several games off to donate bone marrow.  The donation will occur later this week but Glen was unable to play in the game as he prepares for the procedure.
