Sharks, Caps Draw Well For Game 1

Two links.  Number one, from Randy Hahn’s Facebook page (yes, I’ve reached):

People like Sharks Playoffs Broadcasts on Comcast Sportsnet California: The 3.85 game rating for Game 1 vs Colorado destroyed the season high of 2.09 (1/21 v Anaheim). The 1.78 Sharks Pregame Live rating destroyed the season high of 0.82 (10/6 at LA Kings)

And for the second time today, Sports Media Watch:

The underwhelming start of the Capitals’ presumably long playoff run drew strong numbers on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.

The Capitals’ Thursday night loss to the Canadiens in Game 1 of their first round series drew a 5.1 rating (120,000 HHs) on CSN Mid-Atlantic, the highest rating ever for Game 1 of a Capitals playoff series on the network.

Ratings peaked at a 7.4 during overtime.

The 5.1 rating is the fourth-highest for any Capitals playoff game on CSN, behind only Games 6 and 7 of Penguins/Capitals in ’09 and Game 7 of Flyers/Capitals in ’08.
