Highlights from Scoring With Science include:
The Third Team
When fans watch hockey they see two teams on the ice. But there’s a critical third team – scientists. They’re discovering how to improve hockey skills, equipment and bodies. Among their findings: the three keys to the perfect wrist shot, the skate that’s as light as a running shoe, the machine that improves skating, the best way to sharpen blades, the ideal way to train in the off season, and the best time to pull the goalie.
A Team of All-Stars
Ingram hits the ice for a skate and chat with marquee NHL players including former all-star Gary Roberts, Steve Stamkos, Jake Gardiner, and Stephen Weiss. Then, the legendary broadcaster meets up with Alain Hache, a physicist, author, and beer league goalie. He’ll reveal the secrets of the slap shot from the point of view of the shooter and the goalie. Next, award-winning chemist Gabor Somorjai aims his sophisticated equipment at ice to tell us what makes it slippery.
Let’s See That in Slow Mo!
No hockey broadcast is complete without slow-motion replays, so of course, the SLO-MO in Scoring with Science is extraordinary. It’s all thanks to a high-speed camera known as the Phantom Flex. It shoots 1000 frames a second and doesn’t miss anything, ever.
