Four-episode show will lead up to Winter Classic on New Year's Day

HBO Sports’ “24/7” reality franchise will take viewers inside one of the NHL’s great rivalries, between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals, for "24/7 Penguins-Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic."


The HBO Sports presentation debuts in prime time Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 10 PM and follows the two clubs simultaneously, chronicling their highs and lows each week. The teams will meet in a Dec. 23 regular-season matchup on the Capitals’ home ice, leading into episode three, as the build-up intensifies for the Jan. 1 showdown at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.


Ensuing episodes debut on subsequent Wednesdays – Dec. 22 and 29 and Jan. 5 – at 10:00 p.m., with an immediate encore play at 11:00 p.m. The Jan. 5 series finale debuts four days after the Classic, with cameras tracking all the drama and excitement surrounding the Capitals and Penguins on game day. All four episodes will have multiple replay dates on HBO, and the series will also be available on HBO On Demand.


The series will provide exclusive behind-the-scenes access, along with in-depth interviews of coaches, players and front-office personnel, as the Caps and Penguins battle through their December schedules, meeting twice in one week, including the first-ever NHL game at Heinz Field.
