The day after the Cup, 11:45 a.m.: Boston ratings break records

According to Austin Karp, Asst. Managing Editor of Sports Business Daily [1], the Bruins-Canucks Game 7 Wednesday night earned a 5.7 rating overnight, which tied the 2003 Devils-Ducks finale as best Stanley Cup [2] Game 7 overnight on record. It also tied for the second best Stanley Cup overnight in 37 years. It was tied with last year’s Blackhawks-Flyers Game 6.

The ratings were even better in Boston. According to Bruce Allen, Boston Sports Media Watch [3], the game earned a 43.4 rating locally with a 64 share. It’s the best overnight on record for a hockey game in Boston.
