For those of you who missed it Saturday night, here is the Caps Pens 24/7 Preview that HBO aired. Epic.
Clearly needs more narration from the great and powerful Crosby. The opening graphic of Varlamov getting scored on as well is particularly nice. Any chance that this series is going to be unbiased is a pipe dream. Shame.
Oh man oh man oh man…
OMG THIS MADE ME GET GOOSE BUMPS AND MY HEART MELTTTTTTT!! OMG OMG OMG AAAH I CANT WAAIITT!
Less Crybaby. More Nicky. Please.
Thanks for posting this–damn it, I want to kick Talbot in the teeth and I’m so riled up, I have no idea how I’m going to calm down before work.
yeah, little pittsburgh bias there? maybe?
still – it will be nice to see the behind the scenes with the caps, once hbo gets done show-casing sid.
Too much use of soft focus / oddball lighting. WAY too much.
Did anyone else notice most of the Caps’ footage was from practice, while most of the Pens’ footage was from games?
1. I definitely noticed the opening with the puck going by Varly and into the net so…not impressed.
2. Em, I completely agree. I’m not a very anti-Pens fan, but when Max Talbot came on screen I was engulfed with rage. Maybe he should spend more time trying to get on Ovie’s level (haha ok can’t take that thought seriously) instead of spending time bashing Ovie in a desperate and pathetic attempt to get some attention.
3. Also, I can’t be the only one that thinks that Crosby’s voice sounds like he just witnessed a thousand cats getting slaughtered.
Thanks for posting this. I don’t have HBO and have been trying to find this online.
5:53 “Alexander Ovechkin, arguably the best player in the solar system.”
Thanks from me too for posting this. I don’t have HBO, but will order it for the minimum 30 days so I can watch this preview plus the four part series on the Winter Classic.
I’m hoping HBO will do right by the Caps/Pens rivalry and not make any pre-conceived bias obvious when the final product airs.
5:53 “Alexander Ovechkin, arguably the best player in the solar system.” Now if only he would come back to planet earth and start playing like the Ovy we used to know.
