About The Show
On one side stands an outsized and famously raucous star from Russia, and on the other, a young but spectacular leader adopted by the Steel City. The rivalry between the Washington Capitals' Alexander Ovechkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby, along with the differing personalities of head coaches Bruce Boudreau and Dan Bylsma, sets the stage for an all-out battle when the two teams meet outdoors on Pittsburgh's Heinz Field - the culminating moment of ‘24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic.'
For the first time, HBO's hit series ‘24/7' will follow its subjects through their regular season, capturing all the behind-the-scenes action and drama of a bruising pro schedule. The award-winning ‘24/7' series has focused on boxers, NASCAR drivers and now NHL pros since its inception in 2007, winning 12 Sports Emmys.
