Reviewing CBC’s Weekend: Habs Centennial Nearly Beats Leafs-Bruins

William Houston with his weekly numbers:

Hockey Night In Canada pre-game, Friday, (Canadiens 100th anniversary celebration), 1.203 million; Boston Bruins-Canadiens, 1.101 million.

Hockey Night pre-game, Saturday, 523,000; Toronto Maple Leafs-Bruins, 1.453 million (well below season average, probably because of no regional telecasts with the national game); Game 2, Calgary Flames-San Jose Sharks, 810,000.

It was more festivity drawn, but still, the Habs game didn’t do all that worse on an unfamiliar CBC hockey night than the Leafs did in the usual timeslot.  Your ratings to date for HNIC are after the jump.
