Caps Outdraw Pens on VERSUS
April 20, 2010 4 Comments
With no local markets factoring in, the ratings for VERSUS games would probably be a good determining factor in what hockey fans across the country prefer watching as far as teams and stars go. I think you know where I’m going here. Yes, I’m turning this into a Crosby/Ovechkin thing. Anyway, looks like this round goes to Alexander the great as the Capitals out-rated the Penguins over the weekend, via John Ourand’s Twitter:
OTT/PIT Game 2: 519,000 households
DET/PHX Game 2: 408,000 households
MTL/WSH Game 2: 549,000 households
PIT/OTT Game 3: 492,000 households
Of course, it could also be due to the draw of the Canadiens and their fans around North America, has the Sens are a bit of a buzzkill team. But it appears hockey fans give Alex Ovechkin their due over the weekend for now. From the looks of their current series, we’ll be seeing a lot more of them on VERSUS during the tournament.
