NEW YORK – June 16, 2011 – Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final, which saw the Boston Bruins defeat the Vancouver Canucks, 4-0, to claim their first championship since 1972, generated a 5.7/10 overnight rating, tying 2003 for the best NHL Stanley Cup Game 7 overnight on record, according to overnight data released today by The Nielsen Company.

from Phil at Gunazin.com,
This afternoon I was at the Capitals vs. Penguins nationally televised game, covering it for CapitalsOutsider.com. Following the game, as I was waiting for the elevator, Mike Milbury of NBC walked up close to me. So I figured I could ask him about the comment he made during the 1st intermission, that upset many Capitals fans.
continue if you wish and Phil also had a video camera with him and started recording some of the action which you can watch below.
I don’t think this is going to turn out very good and may shine a bad light on the hockey blogging community, but I do hope it is looked upon as an incident and not reflective of hockey bloggers in general.
Again you can read Phil’s side of the story at the link above and I have my doubts that Milbury will even comment on it, which would be the right thing to do in my opinion.
