The 2011 Winter Classic is just a month away and as you’d be right to expect, we here at PHT are excited for it. The game is set for 1:00 pm on New Year’s Day and will be live on NBC and we’ll be there to see the sights around Pittsburgh both inside and outside of Heinz Field.
Making things more interesting and much more fun is what HBO is doing with their tremendous 24/7 series. This time around, HBO will be following both teams and documenting everything leading up to January 1 in their series: 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road To The Winter Classic.
If you’ve yet to see it, we’ve got the preview for the series which kicks off on December 15th at 10 p.m. It’ll be the best 11 minutes you can spend today to get psyched up for the game.
