from Michael O'Connell of The Hollywood Reporter,
With no overtime and a decisive early lead for the Los Angeles Kings, Monday's 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers predictably saw the most modest ratings yet for the 2014 Stanley Cup finals.
The first game of the championship series to air on cable net NBC Sports, game three averaged 2.9 million viewers on Monday night. That's down from the first two match-ups in Los Angeles, which pulled in a respective 4.8 and 6.4 million viewers to NBC -- the latter being an all-time game two record.
It's the smallest haul for Stanley Cup finals since game four in 2012. NBCSN, available in roughly 85 million homes, typically brings in fewer viewers than its broadcast sibling.
