NBC earned a 1.6 overnight Nielsen rating for its coverage of the Canadiens-Penguins NHL Eastern Conference Semifinals Game Two yesterday, even with the overnight for last year’s Red Wings-Ducks Game One, which went into triple OT. Meanwhile, the Bruins’ 5-4 overtime win over the Flyers in Game One of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series also earned NBC a 1.6 overnight, up 14.3% from a 1.4 overnight for Penguins-Capitals Game One last year.
