HBO 24/7 Red Wings/Maple Leafs: Watch Both Team's Stars Break Down the Rivalry

Isaac SmithAnalyst IDecember 10, 2013

HBO's 24/7 Red Wings/Maple Leafs: Road to the Winter Classic features two franchises with a long and storied rivalry. 

The Red Wings' Brendan Smith and Stephen Weiss note that growing up in the Toronto area doesn't prevent them from gloating after wins over the Leafs.

On the other side of the ice, David Clarkson and Joffrey Lupul state their disdain for Detroit, but admit that often stems from the Red Wings being among the best teams in hockey nearly every season. The video shows that there will be no shortage of emotions on New Years' Day.
