'24/7' films rink build
PHILADELPHIA -- It's not just the players and coaches from the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers who will get their turn in the spotlight of HBO's "24/7 Flyers-Rangers: Road to the NHL Winter Classic."

A crew from the award-winning documentary series was filming for most of the morning the work being done by the hundred or so tasked with laying the last of the ice trays, installing the boards, locking in the coolant pipes, building various stages and platforms and hanging signage around the ballpark.

Look for scenes of the rink construction here at Citizens Bank Park worked into a future episode of "24/7" -- possibly even Episode 2, which debuts tonight on HBO at 10 p.m. ET.

You can follow along all the work being done here at the ballpark at NHL.com's live webcam.
