So they aren’t going to show the response to the OT win against the Flames? That would be a shame.

I would assume it would show the OT win over the Flames. 24/7 seems to have covered every game played thus far, both Detroit and Toronto side. I would be just a little shocked if they deviated from that, especially since FSD’s Trevor Thompson tweeted that the 24/7 film crew was observed cheering and giving each other high-fives after the OT win over the Flames.

It would be a shame, indeed, if all of that was cut from this forthcoming episode.
