    I thought it would be a little higher like 1.5 for the Chicago/Nashville game but the NFL draft nonsense probably cost it a point or two…..Bad news for the NHL if Detroit get eliminated, though. If things work out maybe Pitt/Bos and Wash/Phil in the next round. NBC would be all over those series I bet…..a Chi/Van series won’t fly on national TV
