Game 7 Draws Big Overnight Rating

From Sports Media Watch:

The final game of the Capitals/Rangers series was up big from the only second round Game 7 last season.

Game 7 of the Capitals/Rangers second round Stanley Cup playoff series drew a 1.4 overnight rating on NBC Sports Network Saturday night, according to USA Today — up 54% from Red Wings/Sharks Game 7 on a Thursday night last year.

The 1.4 overnight trails the two previous Saturday games in the series. Game 4 on May 5 drew a 1.6 overnight rating, and Game 1 on April 28 drew a 1.5.

Both games aired on the NBC broadcast network.

The game also drew a 4.8 in New York, a record for the NHL in the market. Should be more information on Game 7 soon.
