    If you throw out the Jan 17 and the Mar 24 games which went up against the NFL playoffs and NCAA basketball opening weekend the ratings aren’t that bad for a 12:30 time slot. Even the NBA wasn’t going head to head with the NFL or NCAA basketball on those weekends. They know how to protect their ratings. Since the NHL doesn’t really have a TV contract with NBC they probably don’t really care. They just like being on national TV.
