STAMFORD, Conn. - The Stanley Cup finals' Game 2 drew the most viewers for the NHL on NBC Sports Network since the cable channel started televising the league in 2006.
The Boston Bruins' 2-1 overtime win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night averaged 3.96 million viewers. That's more than triple the 1.18 million for the first finals game on the network last year, Game 3 between the Devils and Kings.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
