I borrowed my friends Canon 580 speedflash and took these pictures. I have the Canon 20D and the lens used wasmy Sigma (bigma) 50-500mm. I have struggled inside at hockey rinks for years and the flash I own the Canon 420 is definitly history after using the 580 tonight. The 50-500mm allows me to bring the shot up close and still get a decent picture because the flash goes out just enough. John

Maybe try shooting at ISO 1600 or ISO3200 and wide open (F2.8 or better).

You might get away with not needing a flash, or using a little fill flash.
