FRIDAY: Phoenix/Nashville Continues to Struggle
May 8, 2012 5 Comments
Game 5 numbers from Predators/Coyotes should be available, but Game 4 numbers from the weekend show this as a series still struggling to gain traction since it shifted from Phoenix to Nashville.
Game 4 between Phoenix and Nashville drew 660,000 viewers on NBC Sports Network. While that’s up huge from Game 3, which drew one of the lowest numbers of the playoffs during the Triple-OT Rangers/Caps game, it failed to match the numbers from Games 1 & 2 despite facing no other NHL competition.
The series should gain a few more viewers from an OT lead-in from the Rangers and Capitals on Monday night.
