Produced by 53-time Emmy® award winner Ross Greenburg, narrated by Bill Camp (Black Mass, 12 Years a Slave) and presented in partnership with NHL Original Productions, this is the second year that EPIX and the NHL® team up to provide viewers with exclusive access to the players and coaches – in their professional and personal settings, capturing all the action, camaraderie, drama, humor, heartaches and triumphs as they unfold. Two of the NHL’s most storied franchises, the Bruins and Canadiens have faced off against each other more than any other two teams in NHL history. When these long-time rivals meet on Jan. 1, Boston will become the first Club to host the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® for a second time, after defeating the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime of the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® at Fenway Park. It will mark the first time the Canadiens will play in the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, and just the second time a Canadian-based NHL team will participate in the event, following the Toronto Maple Leafs’ appearance in 2014.
