NHL, HBO Still Finalizing Plans For Next Winter Classic "24/7" Series
The NHL has announced the teams that will be playing in the '15 Winter Classic – the Blackhawks and Capitals – but it has been relatively silent on the "24/7" series that traditionally has been produced in the run-up to the game. That is because the league still has not finalized plans with HBO. However, HBO Sports President Ken Hershman told THE DAILY that an official announcement is coming. Hershman: "We're having a series of meetings with the NHL discussing how we move forward on that project. Hopefully, we'll have something to announce shortly."
