Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 7 Ratings: NBC Pulls In 5.7 Overnight Rating, Tying Stanley Cup Finals Game 7 Record

The final ratings news of the 2011 NHL season for NBC is good news. Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night tied the best-ever overnight rating for a Game 7 with a 5.7/10 rating. That ties 2003's Game 7 between the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and the New Jersey Devils.

The numbers are up 14 percent from the last Game 7 in the Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings, back in 2009. That game pulled in a rating of 5.0, and NBC was sure to point out in their press release that two American markets particpated in that game.

The game registered the second-best rating in the last 37 years of the Stanley Cup Playoffs overall in the United States, coming in only behind Chicago's 2010 clincher in Game 6 against Philadelphia.
