It is still months away, but HBO will be producing another potential Emmy-winning program featuring two hated rivals in the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers as they prepare for this season's Bridgestone Winter Classic.
HBO's 24/7 program will follow the two clubs for a few weeks prior to the Winter Classic, which will take place on January 2, 2012. It will televise four shows starting on December 14th, with the last airing after the Winter Classic on January 4, 2012
Last year's show provided an unreal look inside the locker room and the lives of an NHL team. Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau starred in last season's series as a one-of-a-kind locker room personality.
In this storied rivalry, I am sure that personalities will emerge in this season's airing. Jaromir Jagr is one to be watching this season after he's been out of the NHL for three seasons. Here are some others who will be interesting to follow.
