HBO does plenty of things right. From great series like The Wire to boxing and comedy specials, the network almost seems like it has the Midas touch.

The NHL will receive its star treatment as part of the channel’s popular, Emmy-winning “24/7″ series. Not too surprisingly, HBO chose to follow the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins around for the reality show/documentary as they prepared for the 2011 Winter Classic.

Hockey fans clamoring for any bits and pieces they can absorb from what should be a transfixing bit of video should be excited: HBO will tease puckheads with a 12-minute preview of the special this weekend.

It will first air 12:15 a.m. ET on Saturday, following a live boxing telecast. The actual documentary will premiere on Wednesday, December 15 at 10 pm ET. HBO will air replays of the previews frequently and it will also be available for those with On Demand packages. Here is the planned replay schedule of the preview, in case you cannot see it the first time.

    Do some research – HBO changed the logo for 24/7

      Is it that big a deal about the logo? The colors changed a bit, it’s not exactly like the story was wrong.
