Game 5 earns highest non-OT rating since 2002 @NHLdotcom

NEW YORK (AP) -The Blackhawks' big win earned the highest preliminary television rating for a nonovertime Game 5 in the Stanley Cup finals in eight years.

Chicago's 7-4 victory over the Flyers on Sunday night on NBC drew a 4.0 overnight rating and 7 share. That's up 54 percent from the 2.6 for Game 5 of the Detroit-Pittsburgh series last year. It's the best for a Game 5 that didn't go to OT since a 4.5 for Carolina-Detroit in 2002, before the NHL lockout.
