Game 7 Ratings: Rangers Best MSG Showing Since 1994 Stanley Cup Finals

Game 7–the two words are the most anticipated in sports, with the exception perhaps of the “Super Bowl.”

It’s just excitement for the fans, as executives at MSG Network must be thrilled. First off, their Rangers and Devils advanced. Secondly, the decisive opening round seventh games in the NHL playoffs were huge ratings winners.

The Blueshirts outlasted the Senators, and the Nielsen Household rating of 5.74 made it the highest-rated Rangers game since another Game 7 during the memorable 1994 Stanley Cup Finals.

As for the Devils/Panthers on MSG Plus, they scored the best since the 2001 Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Time to move on to this year’s conference semis, as MSG produces post-game shows for all Rangers games, and all Devils home games.
