HBO moving “Road to the Winter Classic” to prime time

Lost in the wake of last year's lockout was not only the 2013 Winter Classic, but also HBO's Emmy Award-winning series, 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic. Luckily though for hockey fans, it returns this year, beginning Saturday, December 14.

HBO had this to say in a press release earlier today:

For the first time, all four episodes of the HBO Sports HD presentation debut in prime time, on consecutive Saturday nights. Episodes two and three debut on subsequent Saturdays, Dec. 21 and 28, at the same time. The series finale debuts Saturday, Jan. 4, three days after the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, with cameras tracking all the drama of game day. All episodes will have multiple replay dates on HBO, and the series will also be available on HBO On Demand® and HBO GO®.  

Here is the promotional trailer that was released as well:
