It just goes to show that the Bruins are smarter about planning and that New England fans support their team more.

And actually, it was 8.5 million for game seven and it was the fourth-largest average audience for a U.S. telecast of an NHL game ever and the most since May 10, 1973. Hockey is on the rise, brother.
