The programs produced by Epix will be eight parts in total (four for each game), and network CEO Mark Greenberg told SB Nation that each episode won’t necessarily be limited to a 45 or 50 minute block like HBO’s series was. He didn’t elaborate on that, and it could mean a number of things — the episodes could simply be longer, or Epix could provide extra behind-the-scenes clips available to their subscribers. It’s yet to be seen and will probably ultimately depend on the content. Greenberg merely spoke of the lack of limitations that Epix has in producing each episode. So we’ll see what happens with that. Will the production value be HBO-quality? Our hope is that the production value will just as good as on HBO, although it seems unlikely that the unmatchable narration skills of Liev Schreiber will be available to Epix for their program. That’s just us thinking out loud, because Schreiber is so ingrained with HBO Sports programming. But we’ll see. He has worked for Showtime on sports before so it’s not like he’s never gone out of the HBO family. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/9/23/6834453/nhl-epix-documentary-series-all-access-winter-classic-stadium-series

21 at Levi’s Stadium. The behind-the-scenes look will have the same “24/7” approach that was featured on HBO in recent years, but will not appear on that premium channel. Instead it will air on EPIX, a lesser known premium cable and satellite channel, as well as multiple websites where it can be viewed for free. Specific dates or number of episodes were not announced. Sharks coach Todd McLellan said he had not given the series a lot of thought as far as the impact it might have on his hockey team this season. “Right off top of my head, it’s not normal and change is a tough thing for everybody to accept,” he said. “I don’t know what the parameters are, I don’t know how we’ll be dealing with things.” The NHL and EPIX are producing a similar series leading up to the Jan. 1 Winter Classic between the Washington Capitals and Chicago Blackhawks.

1 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., for the 2015 NHL Winter Classic The Capitals, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, even brought a whole new logo to the table for the event. Prominently featuring a new “W” style logo with capitals written across, the inner point of the “W” actually looks like the Washington Monument for a nice local flair. Here’s a look at the full uniform of which RussianMachineNeverBreaks.com had the first images: You can see more images of the jersey here. With a history that dates back only 40 years and the Capitals already using that older logo in their last trip to the Winter Classic, they needed something new and this is pretty unique. It gives a relatively young organization an old-time feel as the jersey looks like something out of a bygone era. The stiping down the arms and the deeper red, almost like a crimson, is quite a departure from the Capitals’ primary brand, which can be difficult for some teams. It’s great that the Caps decided to branch out for this once-in-a-lifetime event. Here’s more on the decisions behind the designs from the Capitals’ Dump ‘n Chase blog: Instead of paying homage to their own 40-year history in the design of the sweaters theyll sport on New Years Day, the Capitals and Reebok elected to dial the way-back machine a bit further, back to the 1940s and the days of the Uline Arena and the old Washington Lions of the Eastern Hockey League and the American Hockey League. The decision makers and designers spent some time poring over old photos of players and sweaters from Washingtons pre-NHL hockey history, and the result is the maroon, white and blue sweater emblazoned with stars and stripes and a “CAPITALS” wordmark over a large blue “W” revealed here today. Now that the Capitals are going with red, that eliminates one color for the Blackhawks uniforms. Chicago has worn black jerseys in each of their last two outdoor games including the 2009 Winter Classic and last year’s Stadium Series game. Could we possibly see a white uniform from one of the league’s Original Six? The 2015 Winter Classic logo was unveiled and it’s actually pretty cool in its own right as well. The logo prominently features the U.S. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/photos-capitals-unveil-2015-winter-classic-jerseys-124241833.html

View gallery Washington Capitals From the Capitals: The 2015 Capitals NHL Winter Classic jersey includes many elements from Capitals jerseys worn during the past five decades. The Capitals wordmark on the front of the jersey has been a hallmark of Caps jerseys throughout the past four decades, even through several redesigns. The stars on the front are also an element seen on many Capitals jerseys through the years, including the Capitals current jersey. The primary color for the Capitals NHL Winter Classic uniform is vintage deep red to symbolize hockeys deep roots in Washington. The stripes on the shoulders, waist and legs bring in elements of Washington professional hockey jerseys from the 1930s, predating the Capitals formation in the 1970s. A large W on the front of the jersey, offset in blue to contrast the white Capitals wordmark, offers a unique look never seen before on Capitals jerseys. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/pass-or-fail–washington-capitals–bold-2015-winter-classic-jerseys-165628495.html
