Watching Game 1, Stanley Cup Final

via the Hollywood Reporter,

Metered-markets give the Los Angeles Kings-New York Rangers showdown a 3.8 rating among households. That's a a drop of more than 20 percent from last year. Still, the game was up considerably from the last time the Kings, Wednesday's overtime winners, had a stake. The 2012 game one featuring the Kings and the New Jersey Devils delivered only a 2.4 rating.

All initial ratings are subject to change, but as it stands, hockey viewership in Los Angeles was also up. The game took a 7.1 households rating in the nation's biggest market -- the third-best ever for a hockey game in the town.

Adjustments will likely paint a slightly tweaked picture, but, as it stands, NBC leads the night with a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49.

The game was boring thanks to its featuring of two weak teams, but Bettman and the league are very happy. LA and NY are far from being the best teams in the league-boring.
