One of the benefits to playing in the Winter Classic is being part of an NHL documentary series. The shows featuring the Buffalo Sabres will be easily accessible.
The NHL's "Road to the Winter Classic" is moving to NBCSN. The behind-the-scenes series was on HBO for its first three seasons and EPIX the last three seasons. ESPN first reported the move of the show, which it said will air Wednesday nights starting sometime in December.
NBCSN is the league's television rights-holder in the United States and is part of most cable and satellite packages.
The Sabres will play the New York Rangers in the Winter Classic on Jan. 1 in Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. The shows will serve as previews.
