Penguins-Capitals Winter Classic to Get HBO ‘Hard Knocks’ Treatment (3 videos)
HBO is prepping a “Hard Knocks”-style show leading up to the New Years Day Winter Classic between the Penguins and the Capitals.
The open-air game at Heinz Field — and presumably the mini-series — will star the two biggest names in hockey: Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. The two captains, and their teammates and coaches, will be mic’d up in the days leading up to, as well as during, the big game. There will likely be dozens of cameras at home, on the road, and in the locker rooms filming Ovie and Sid the Kid’s every moves.
