Watching shootout on TV

I didn't like the camera work on MSG last night, showing the shootout from behind the shooter. On Cullen's and Hossa's goals you could see the puck going in because they shot high, but on Nylander's and Shanahan's goals we didn't actually get a good look at the puck going in the net, and found it was a goal when Sam said it was a goal. Not good. Same thing happened on one of the Devils' goals.

On FSNY, however, they used the Center Ice camera (they way we're 'used' to watching a game), and there was never any doubt about whether the puck went in or not. Much easier to watch.

I felt exactly the same way. Although I liked being able to see the shooter clearer with the behind angle, I had a hard time seeing the puck go in.

On the Prucha attempt, they were using a camera behind and over Lundqvists' left shoulder. The netting behind Henke was in focus, Prucha and Broduer were not.

Not real sharp production either. They ran replays over one of the live attempts late in the shootout.

Didn't even think of switching channels. D'oh!

I was watching the game on mute in a sports bar and the camera work was so bad that I thought the puck went in on a bunch of Devils shots when it didn't. I was cursing so much because I thought the Devils won the shootout.

Although the replays cut into ACTUAL shootout attempts, I was VERY happy with the speed of the shootout.

For going as deep as it did, it was commendable of the refs and more the players of getting set and started on the next attempt.

Past shootouts have taken twice as long timewise to complete.

During the USA/Canada game today, they showed the shootouts from behind the goalie. I thought it was perfect.

I personally don't like the behind the goalie angle as the primary shot.

It does show the result the best (puck in or not), you lose the detail of the goalie's performance. Everything isn't about the shooter.

With the average size of televisions much larger than year's past, I wonder if a a split screen would be at all feasible.

I agree I thought they ran it much quicker than usual which I liked alot.

I wish they'd give us an overhead view from above the goalie...that'd probably be the best way to watch the shootout. Or at least a picture that has the goalie and player in the picture the whole way

Cullen and Hossa's shots were shown behind the shooter on FSNY as well.

The game was in NJ so that may be why it was different from the normal camera work at MSG. The most annoying was the replay on during the actual shooting. TBBB might be right, that an overhead shot would give the best view of the puck.

Overhead shot? Maybe for replays, but it would seem weird to watch a live play like that. And you would lose the nuances of what moves the shooter is/isn't making.

I still think the center ice shot is best, because it's how we're used to watching the game, and it usually gives you the best view of the shooter, the goalie, and the result.

Eh..I'd rather see the goalie and shooter the whole time
