Yeah, that's probably the personality you'd like to focus a behind the scenes documentary on. HBO is smart, and that's what they'll be doing for Rangers-Flyers 24/7: Road To The Winter Classic. Via the Globe & Mail:
Calling it the worst-kept secret in hockey, NHL chief operating officer John Collins has confirmed that the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers, the teams featured in the Jan. 2 Winter Classic, will be the subjects of next season's instalment (sic) of HBO's 24/7. The inclusion of Rangers coach John Tortorella and Flyers' new goalie Ilya "Why you have to be mad?" Bryzgalov became slam dunks when the NHL schedule was released showing them as the New Year's holiday attraction.
I think a few things just officially set in for me: Ilya Bryzgalov is a Flyer, we're in the Winter Classic and HBO is going to follow our team around for a month. Yes.
