Opening night ratings in eight NHL markets where Fox Sports Net (FSN) televises games were all up over opening night 2003 (the league was dark last season), ranging from gains of 3 percent to 257 percent. The Detroit Red Wings telecast on FSN-Detroit produced an 8.1 rating, up 3 percent from the 7.9 the opening night telecast produced in 2003. The St. Louis Blues telecast was up 24 percent to a 2.1; Columbus Blue jackets, up 69 percent to a 2.2; Boston Bruins, up 107 percent to a 2.9; Pittsburgh Penguins, up 122 percent to a 7.1; Pheonix Coyotes, up 140 percent to a 1.2; San Jose Sharks, up 200 percent to a 1.5; and Tampa Bay Lightning, up 257 percent to a 2.5.thanks to reader kdog for the heads up. As many people know, especially in the Detori makret, the Wings are a huge draw for Fox Sports. The question that keeps getting asked, yet FSD refuses to answer, why no high definition for the Detroit market?
