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.
There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
