Stanley Cup Final Game 7 Scores 5.7 Overnight Rating

Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final earned a 5.7 overnight rating (10 share), tying 2003 (Anaheim-New Jersey) for the best NHL Stanley Cup Game 7 overnight on record, according to The Nielsen Company.

Wednesday’s game ties for the second-best Stanley Cup overnight rating in 37 years, trailing only last year’s Chicago-Philadelphia Game 6 (5.8/10 overnight)

In Boston, the game earned a 43.4 rating and a 64 share, the best overnight in the Boston market featuring a local team in any major sports championship since Super Bowl XLII (55.6) in 2008.

For the entire Stanley Cup, Boston’s local rating was a 28.1/44, 12 percent higher than Boston’s seven-game average (25.0/40) for the 2010 NBA Finals on ABC.
