Thought it might be a Nelson Emerson, but google image search doesn't show it.
The 91-92 UD Nelson Emerson is shot from a very low angle in a dark arena where Emerson has a stationary puck sitting in front of him and he's about to shoot it. It's a close-up since the photographer is laying on the ice only a few feet away. I did a search on Nelson Emerson Upper Deck and it showed a few examples.

The 90-91 Ray Bourque card shows him jumping over the boards...striking action shot.
