    I'm reminded of something else while watching this game. I remember having to watch games INTENTLY back then to try to follow the puck, and it wasn't always easy from the center ice upper level camera. While I've mentioned before that I dislike the over-the-top zooming/panning camera work of today, it does afford the ability to capture a scramble in front of the net from different replay angles and see who actually shot the puck, whether it bounced off a skate, etc. The flip side is that you don't have to pay close attention today; you can be doing something else with the game on and if you hear the crowd roar, you'll see whatever you missed from a few different angles.

    Had the virtue of a fixed point of reference.
