If you missed the first episode of “HBO 24/7 Red Wings-Maple Leafs: Road To The NHL Winter Classic," you missed Randy Carlyle's struggle with a toaster over; Dion Phaneuf's wardrobe; Jimmy Howard's pre-game mental exercises; and tons of screen time for Stephen Weiss.
Our review of Episode 1 was that it was "meh," and we're such fanboys of the series that the Episode 2, premiering Saturday night at 10 p.m. ET on HBO and 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday for our Canadian friends with Sportsnet, has us hoping this was just setting up for big things to come.
Thanks to HBO, here's a censored Episode 1 in its entirety. Sorry Canada, they've made this video U.S.-only.
