Stanley Cup finals Game 2 draws most viewers for NHL on NBC Sports Network

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.

Quote of the Day

That's the biggest goal I've ever scored. It's a great feeling any time you do that, especially at home. We're one game away from a Stanley Cup berth. It was a huge goal and it felt unbelievable.
