VIDEO: Winter Classic coaches featured in latest '24/7' teaser
Randy Carlyle and Mike Babcock could both play big roles in this year's '24/7' series. The two are featured in the latest teaser for the HBO show.
The premier of HBO's 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic is just a couple of days away (it debuts on Saturday, Sunday in Canada) and the network is doing all it can to tease fans of what awaits.
It's doing a pretty good job.
Another in the long line of teaser clips for the upcoming show that will span four weeks and follow the Red Wings and Maple Leafs in their run-up to the Winter Classic (including the game itself) focuses on the coaches. In the short clip they discuss a range of things including the task of coaches to manage all of their players and the personalities.
Just a hunch here but I think both coaches might prove to be excellent on this show. Carlyle definitely has a Bruce Boudreau feel to him (beyond their physical similarities) and Babcock is a relatively candid coach who knows a thing or two. The show can't get here soon enough.
