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.
Actually I over shot it. Lol

Up 2%...

NEW YORK (AP)—The Boston Bruins’ Stanley Cup-clinching victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night earned the highest television rating for an NHL game in 37 years.

Boston’s 4-0 win in Game 7 on NBC earned a 4.8 rating and 8 share. That’s the best since a 7.6/27 for Boston-Philadelphia in 1974.

It’s up 2 percent from last year’s deciding Game 6 between Chicago and Philadelphia and up 12 percent from the most recent Game 7 in 2009 between Detroit and Pittsburgh.

The seven games averaged 4.6 million viewers on NBC and Versus, the most for a series split between network and cable involving a Canadian team.
