What a year! A Stanley Cup and a World Series in my backyard here in Boston. A 20-year playoff drought for my Pittsburgh Pirates finally ended. And I documented an awful tragedy that had the overwhelming healing and support of its community and the very sports teams I photograph on a daily basis. Immediately following that was an inspiring showcase of talent and determination of the Wounded Warriors Amputee softball team that was put on display at Fenway Park against the men and women who were among the first responders on April 15th on near the finish line on Boylston Street.

For many, I’m sure that looking at sports photographs is merely for entertainments sake. Some, because of the raw power, skill, and emotion it shows that watching on television or in person may not be able to convey. But for the few who reached out and called, emailed, etc, because they were moved by my pictures for whatever reason, that to me is the best feeling and what I hope to accomplish every day as a photographer. Those messages help solidify why I do what I do for a living.

And as always, I appreciate the ever-continuing support from the photo community that I’m so lucky to be a part of every day.

So, to recap the year that was, here are some of my favorite images from 2013. Enjoy & Happy New Year!

-Cover the Stanley Cup Final clinching game and watch the cup be raised: ✓

With a little less than two minutes to go, I don’t think anyone thought that they’d be cancelling their travel plans back to Chicago for Game 7. Very similar to what the Bruins did to the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals of the NHL Playoffs, Boston allowed two goals in 17 seconds to ultimately seal their fate and give Chicago their second Stanley Cup in three years.

Here is a gallery of some of my favorite images from the very fun, but long night at TD Garden in Boston covering Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks. Enjoy!

The playoffs, in any sport, are always a time for immense drama and emotion. Game 7′s of the NHL Playoffs are no different. But many times they’re hyped up and fizzle out. Much was the case halfway through the third period of the Boston Bruins vs Toronto Maple Leafs Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals at TD Garden.

The Leafs were up 4-1, fans were starting to trickle out of the building, and I thought I was going to be focusing all of my attention on the Red Sox. Part of me thought, this team has come back and scored two goals with the goalie pulled before earlier in the season, against the New York Rangers. Why couldn’t they do it again? At the same time, I didn’t want to get my hopes up.

Following a goal by Nathan Horton, the Bruins were still down by two goals with not a whole lot of time left. Then Lucic scores one with the goalie pulled. Could they do it again, tie it up, and send this game into overtime? As I’m sure you’ve all seen, Patrice Bergeron scored the game-tying goal and won the game for the Bruins in overtime.

That is what a game 7 is supposed to be like. Movie-like with the all of the dramatics of the Stanley Cup playoffs with an unbelievable atmosphere and great reaction from all involved. This will without a doubt, go down as one of the most memorable games of my career.

Here are some of my favorite images from the game…

Now that things have calmed down here in Boston following my eight days of helping out the news team on the Boston Marathon bombing coverage, I’ll put up some images from the last couple of weeks that include some new ideas, taking some chances, and a lot of light chasing!

Enjoy…
