    Some of these numbers are pretty promising. But why on earth is Rangers-Pens so low?!

      Didn’t air in New York or Pittsburgh on the network. VERSUS has a few “bonus games” a month that they air for the rest of the country, but MSG and FSN keep the rights in NY and PIT.

    Now we know why the NHL isn’t sharing ratings….these are horrible…..they better sign partnerships for next years tv coverage before this hurts negotiations
