Come December, hockey fans will be looking forward to the 2012 NHL Winter Classic, but HBO will be offering a look back at last year’s ride.
With the release of 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic — a four-part, behind-the-scenes series, the home entertainment powerhouse is bringing the action to DVD. Headlined by trading card titans Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby, the detailed drama of both teams comes to a compelling climax on the outdoor rink in Pittsburgh.
This marks the first time that the Emmy-award-winning HBO Sports team has joined forces with the NHL — and the end result should be epic. The DVD hits shelves on Dec. 6, but be sure to stay tuned to Beckett.com and Beckett Hockey for a chance to win a copy.
