The NHL has been experimenting with GoPro cameras for a while now, but as far as I can remember this is the first time they’ve been used in a real game. This is Brandon Saad’s goal from yesterday’s Winter Classic, seen through the eyes of the official. A little hard to follow, maybe, but a refreshing new look at the game from an awesome vantage point.
Dear NHL: Start doing this all the time. Worst case you can just ignore all the footage, best case you get 3-5 instances of sweet new angles during the game. Get on that.
