Let's (try to) watch Episode 1 of 'Road to the Winter Classic' together!

Is it possible for an online community to stream something at the same time and have a conversation? Either way, let's talk Road to the Winter Classic!

Okay! So the first episode of "Road to the Winter Classic" debuted on Tuesday night, which unfortunately coincided with the Blackhawks' game against Minnesota. I don't think anyone regrets watching that one, but I still wanted to give everyone a way to watch and comment on the show together if at all possible.

I don't know how well this is going to work and it may just end up being an open thread for you guys to discuss the episode, but I figure let's say everyone start trying to watch at 8:30 p.m. CT tonight. I know I said 8 p.m. last night but I figure some extra buffer would be good and allow everyone to figure out how to watch.

And again, if you still haven't signed up for a free trial with EPIX in order to watch this episode and every one going forward, here's the link for that. It doesn't require a credit card so it's basically a free subscription through mid-March. I also just checked and it's the first listing on the Epix website, so it shouldn't be too hard to find.

That's about it, the usual rules from game threads apply, and let's enjoy. I plan on having a recap of sorts of the episode up sometime tomorrow that'll highlight some things I enjoyed or didn't enjoy or what have you.

So thanks for dropping by, and feel free to let me know in the comments if there's any way we can do this better for the next episode!
