Photos of the year - Joe Bryksa 2013

Photographer's choice: The 119-day NHL lockout was felt hard by Winnipeg Jets fans as it happened at the beginning of our second year back in the big leagues. On their second game on home ice since the lockout ended, the Jets played host to Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburg Penguins. Crosby scored twice in the opening period but the Jets rallied back and won. Blake Wheeler scored on an empty net and sealed the big win at 18:51 in the third. The fans went wild, and I just loved the intense passion of the fans that night.
