Two nights after drawing a huge number on CBC, the Randy Carlyle era and a fascinating collapse down the stretch have Canadian viewers hooked on the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Leafs’ 5-4 loss to the Bruins on Tuesday drew 1.05 million viewers in the Ontario viewing region. The game marked the home debut for new Toronto head coach Randy Carlyle. That was a new record for Sportsnet Ontario, topping the previous high of 956,000 viewers for the Leafs/Canadiens game on February 24. It is also up 34% from the Toronto season average of 788,000.
