Caps-Bruins Game 7 Hits 12-Year High on Cable

NBC Sports Network began part one of a two-night “seventh heaven” with record numbers.

Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series between the victorious Washington Capitals and the Boston Bruins drew 1.32 million viewers, marking the highest quarterfinal number ever for NBCSN/VERSUS/OLN, and the highest for a quarterfinal game on cable since 2000 (SJ/STL, Game 7, 4/25/00: 1.55 million). It becomes the third quarterfinal game on NBCSN this year to crack the million mark, after only one passed one million last year.

NBCSN airs two more Game 7’s tonight.
