HBO's 24/7 Winter Classic preview tomorrow


Thanksgiving Day is married to turkey and football.

But what about Black Friday?

The NHL is looking to stake claim to the day after Thanksgiving, with both the Flyers holding their annual matinee game at the Wells Fargo Center against the Montreal Canadiens and the Red Wings and Bruins starring in the new Thanksgiving Showdown matchup on NBC.

After Friday’s games are played, HBO is hoping you’ll tune in with a leftover turkey, cranberry and stuffing sandwich to watch a preview of the “Flyers-Rangers: 24/7 Road to the Winter Classic.”

The cameras have been intermittently following the Flyers since training camp. Now fans and players will get a glimpse of the highly anticipated series.

Though it won’t be produced by the same crew who is putting together the Emmy Award-winning four-episode NHL reality series, a 12-minute preview on Friday will serve as an introduction to this year’s players and coaches.

The preview will air on HBO at 9:15 p.m.

It will also air another 12 times after that:

Nov. 25 (9:15 p.m.)
Nov. 26 (12:00 p.m.)
Nov. 29 (12:30 p.m. and 4:05 a.m.)
Dec. 2 (9:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m.)
Dec. 4 (9:00 a.m.)
Dec. 6 (8:15 p.m.)
Dec. 9 (2:30 p.m.)
Dec. 12 (5:15 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.)
Dec. 14 (7:00 p.m.)

The first, hour-long episode debuts on Dec. 14 at 10 o’clock. Three episodes will follow on consecutive Wednesdays (Dec. 21, Dec. 28, Jan. 4).
