NCAA Hockey Semi-Final Performs Well for ESPN2

According to our pal, Nate Ewell, who now works for College Hockey Inc:
ESPN2’s second semifinal (North Dakota-Michigan) Thursday got a 0.4, 4th best semi-final rating.
An 0.4 is a solid number for college hockey, and the final ratings (with the overtime buzz) could see numbers competitive with the NHL game on NBC Sunday. Obviously, timeslot differences will help, but there is a solid – if unspectacular – following for NCAA hockey around tournament time.
