Epix's new series The Road to the Outdoor Classics premiered last night - if you missed it, Buffa has a recap coming.
If you'd like to see some previews for future episodes, tune into tonight's game. Sure, next week's episode will probably be all fraught with terrible road trip drama, but tonight's game will be featured in a future episode. Let's hope that the Blues and Blackhawks approach it with as much intensity as they approach talking about the Winter Classic here:
This is your morning open thread. Check back later on for a Lighting the Lamp from Rick, your GDT, a preview, and some other fun stuff. While you're waiting for the puck to drop tonight and planning how to navigate to Scottrade, head over and say hi to some TFUN fans at Second City Hockey and The Committed Indian. They're good people.
