Referee Marc Joannette can add ‘cameraman’ to his resume. The veteran official of over 1000 NHL games gave us a terrific angle for Sidney Crosby’s tenth goal of the season.

The ref cam offers a great view of the play. You’re close the ice, right in the middle of the action. ¬†On this play, you really get an appreciation for the speed and the work involved to get everyone in the right place to make that goal happen — including how tough Crosby battled to get his stick down for that deflection.

Here’s the same play from the arena cameras:

The officials really have the best view in the house. Thanks to referee Marc Joannette for donning the ref cam and giving us a close up of the action.
