Game 5 Overnight and Top 5 Local Markets

Game 5 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final drew a 3.2/6 overnight rating. While this was down 20% from the 4.0/7 Game 5 drew in 2010 for Philadelphia/Chicago, the number is still quite respectable for Boston/Vancouver, considering it was up 19% from 2009’s Pittsburgh/Detroit series, and was up 25% from the last Stanley Cup Final Game 5 to feature a Canadian team, which was Anaheim’s clinching victory over Ottawa.

The local markets were once again led by Boston, which hit a series high 25.8/44. Providence followed, as has been typical throughout the series, with a 16.0/26. Buffalo (7.9/14), Detroit (4.6/8), and Pittsburgh (4.2/7) rounded out the top five. Expecting all the metered markets to come in later. Overall, not a bad Game 5 draw for NBC.
