'Each network will provide technological extras. "We're going to have an airplane in the air for aerial shots, much the way we do at a Sunday night football game," Flood said. "We'll be taking high and wide shots to show the 70-plus thousand people surrounding this sheet of ice. And we'll be going down low with hand-held cameras along the glass." Sherali Najak, the executive producer of Hockey Night in Canada, said the CBC also will use additional cameras at ice level. "With the amount of space you have along the boards, you can really afford to do that," he said.'
