Unless they manage to catch Patrick Kane on an off night (ha ha ha, kidding...sort of), HBO's 24/7 series isn't likely to garner a whole bunch of "unforgettable" footage of the Blackhawks, especially given the way the Wings and Leafs tried so very hard to avoid becoming the next Ilya Bryzgalovs last season, but Comcast Sportsnet Chicago reports that 24/7 may remain the price of admission to taking part in a Winter Classic:
The Blackhawks and Capitals will square off in the 2015 Winter Classic on Jan. 1, but the NHL has yet to announce its plans for the "24/7" series leading up to the game.
According to Sports Business Journal's John Ourand, the league is still in the process of finalizing its plans, but an official announcement is expected to come soon.

"We're having a series of meetings with the NHL discussing how we move forward on that project," HBO Sports President Ken Hershman told The Daily. "Hopefully, we'll have something to announce shortly."
