Tuesday Night Ducks/Caps Game, Blacked Out in DC, Down Slightly From Last Year

After low numbers last Monday with a game blacked out in a big media market, a similar situation produced a much larger audience on Tuesday night.

Last Tuesday’s Anaheim/Washington game drew 258,000 viewers. This was well ahead of the 169,000 drawn by San Jose/NY Rangers on Monday night. Neither game aired in the market of the home team, but did in the market of the road team. This was down 7% from the comparable year-ago match-up (275,000 for SJ/MIN, which aired in both markets). The NHL Live post-game drew 141,000 viewers, up a whopping 45% from the year-ago episode of Hockey Central (78,000).
