Sabres-Lightning Down From 2010, Best VERSUS Numbers Since Opening Night

VERSUS scored decent numbers for Tuesday night’s Sabres-Lightning game, but still trail the numbers from last season.

The network’s telecast of Buffalo-Tampa Bay averaged 338,000 viewers, the best numbers for a VERSUS broadcast since Opening Night (though only the second telecast since opening night where both local markets involved with the game could watch) but down 3% from last year’s comparable telecast (Buffalo-Philadelphia, 347,000 viewers on 10/26/10). The truncated NHL Live post-game show drew 228,000 viewers, up a substantial 59% from last year’s comparable Hockey Central (94,000 on 10/26/10).

VERSUS returns to it’s Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday rotation this week with Sharks/Rangers on Monday, Ducks/Capitals on Tuesday, and Flyers/Sabres on Wednesday.
