HBO miniseries will be on DVD
HBO Home Entertainment will release the mini-series "Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic," on DVD Dec. 6 priced at $19.99.
The four-part series, which first ran on HBO from December through January, followed key players and coaches from both teams as they prepared for the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic on New Year's Day 2011. The Penguins lost that game -- and Sidney Crosby was dazed by a hit to the head -- at Heinz Field. The behind-the-scenes show was HBO's first foray into a 24/7 production beyond boxing and race cars.
Squirrel Hill native Bentley Weiner was coordinating producer for the show, which won a 2011 Sports Emmy for outstanding edited sports show.
