Stars Hit Best Mark Since Lockout with Modano Return

From the Stars:

Mike Modano’s return to Dallas Thursday night produced the highest-rated Dallas Stars telecast on FOX Sports Southwest in over six years, according to Nielsen Media Research. The game against Modano’s new Detroit Red Wings team averaged a 1.7 Nielsen household rating in Dallas-Fort Worth, the best mark for a regular-season Stars telecast on FOX Sports Southwest since a 2.4 on April 2, 2004 against the Minnesota Wild.

An average of 44,630 homes in Dallas-Fort Worth tuned in to watch the former Stars standout play his first game in Dallas wearing a visitor’s sweater. The game was the night’s No. 1-rated cable TV program in Dallas-Fort Worth, beating ESPN’s West Virginia-South Florida college football telecast that averaged a 1.6 rating.
