The uniqueness of the 2013-14 NHL season is revealed in this all-access series that celebrates the league's creation and execution of five outdoor games and its participation in the 2014 Olympic Games. Camera crews are embedded throughout the season with the teams taking part in the NHL Stadium Series -- the Anaheim Ducks, Chicago Blackhawks, Los Angeles Kings, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins -- and the NHL Heritage Classic, which matches the Vancouver Canucks against the Ottawa Senators. Filming takes place in meeting rooms, locker rooms, and at practice sessions, and players wearing mics during games pick up fly-on-the-wall sound bites. The seven-part series also takes viewers to Sochi, Russia, to highlight the Olympic experiences of many of the stars on the series' nine featured teams.
