Truly, the National Hockey League isn't dying? Right?
Let the results speak for themselves.
The 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs had a bad break.
In the second week of their coverage, the Detroit Red Wings' victory over the Calgary Flames had a overnight rating of just 1.3 and the Devils' series win over the Tampa Bay Lightning had a rating of 0.9.
On top of that, the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals Game Three received only 1.73 million viewers. That is a huge drop from the year before with a mere 2.8 million viewers in the 2006 SCF's.
Amazing, that's a 3.4 percent combined viewers that watched both Stanley Cup Finals out of all the households in the US.
Hockey in the United States is dying. Fast.
