NHL: 36

NBC Sports started a new documentary series back in December 2011. Much like HBO’s 24/7, it follows a specific player for 36 hours. You get the chance to see inside the life of a NHL player. Unfortunately it’s not HBO, so you’ll have to deal with the “bleeping,” which if you’ve ever seen inside the hockey world, there’s a decent amount of it.
This post will catch you up with the series, there have been 5 episodes so far and as they air, AHM will post them.
December 14, 2011 – Patrick Kane (Chicago Blackhawks
January 4, 2012 – Patrice Bergeron (Boston Bruins)
January 25, 2012 – Nicklas Lidstrom (Detroit Red Wings)
February 22, 2012 – Mike Richards (L.A. Kings)
March 7, 2012 – James Neal (Pittsburgh Penguins)

HBO: 24/7 Flyers/Rangers: Road to the NHL Winter Classic Episode 2

The first instalment was exactly how I imagined it, in depth, well produced and engaging beyond belief. HBO gives us the perfect inside look to the hockey world. Every camera angle, every song, every sound effect, and every cursed word was taken into consideration when putting this show together. We were given the introduction to each team,¬†Bryzgalov’s thoughts on the universe, Avery’s free time spent modelling and a nice sentimental touch with meeting Callahan’s grandmother. Let’s see what last week had in store.

HBO: 24/7 Flyers/Rangers: Road to the NHL Winter Classic Episode 1

It’s back! Following the tremendous success of last year’s Road to the Winter Classic, HBO’s 24/7¬†features the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers. A 4 part series (one hour each) trailing two hockey clubs leading up to the Winter Classic. This is a peak inside the world of NHL players and the life surrounding them. Uncut, emotional, blunt and hard-hitting are just a few descriptive words that come to mind (and i’m not just talking about Torts). Enjoy.
