If you were following the ratings for the Stanley Cup playoffs all postseason then this probably won’t come as a surprise. The recently concluded Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins was the most-watched final in US history.
The series reached its peak with Game 6 on Monday night not only on the ice when the Blackhawks stunned the Bruins to clinch the Cup but on NBC as well. The game was the third-most watched game on record (since 1994) behind only Boston-Vancouver Game 7 in 2011 and barely behind Chicago-Philadelphia Game 6 in 2010.
