Ratings from yesterday’s NHL on NBC Game of the Week: Red Wings 3, Penguins 0

NHL on NBC ratings for yesterday’s 3-0 shutout victory over the Penguins indicate a 22 percent increase over a comparable date from last year, according to Michael DiLorenzo, the NHL’s Director of Corporate Communications. 

Detroit came in at the top of the television viewer ratings for all U.S. NHL markets:

Top NHL markets included  Detroit (7.4), Pittsburgh (6.9), Buffalo (3.3), Denver (1.3), Columbus (1.2) and Minneapolis-St Paul (1.2). 

Top Non NHL markets included Ft Myers (2.3), New Orleans (2.0), Baltimore (1.6), Cleveland (1.6), Las Vegas (1.6), Oklahoma City (1.4), Cincinnati (1.3) and Seattle (1.3)

Citizens of Hockeytown made sure to tune in to see their team triumph over last year’s Stanley Cup challengers, but the demographics seem to indicate a lot of out-of-market fans may be turning out in larger numbers than expected.

    Maybe this is the rebirth of the NHL.

  2. It is about time that the NHL ratings were high! Maybe the NHL will get a better tv deal soon.

    its about time people start watching NHL!

    hockey players are truly under rated. thats alot of the reason why i love hockey is because the athletes don’t do it for fame or money.
    they play because they love the game!!!

    GO WINGS!
