Watching Game 4, Stanley Cup Final

STAMFORD, Conn. – June 12, 2014,

Last night’s Game 4 delivered a 2.8 overnight rating, ranking as the third-best Stanley Cup Final overnight on NBCSN ever. The overnight for the Rangers 2-1 win over the Kings trails only Games 2-3 of last year’s Stanley Cup Final between the Blackhawks and Bruins.

There is no cable comparison to Game 4 last year as that game aired on NBC, but the 2.8 overnight is up 65% from 2012 (1.7), which featured Devils-Kings, and up 40% from 2011 (2.0), featuring Canucks-Bruins.

Locally, Los Angeles delivered a 7.3 rating, the market’s best ever on NBCSN for an NHL game, surpassing 2012 Game 4 vs. the Devils (6.6).

New York scored its second-best NHL rating ever on NBCSN with an 8.1 rating, trailing only 2014 Game 6 vs. Montreal on the Eastern Conference Final (8.5).

Following are the Top 10 markets for last night’s game.
