BEST STANLEY CUP GAME 1 OVERNIGHT IN 12 YEARS

Game 1 Up 14% Over Last Year's Philadelphia-Chicago Game 1

Boston Leads All Metered Markets with a 25.5 Rating & 39 Share

NEW YORK - June 2, 2011 -- Last night's Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, which featured the Vancouver Canucks defeating the Boston Bruins 1-0, produced the best overnight rating for a Game 1 in 12 years. The broadcast generated a 3.2 overnight rating and 6 share up 14 percent compared to last year's Game 1 (Philadelphia-Chicago, 2.8/6) and the best overnight for a Game 1 since 1999 (Buffalo vs. Dallas, 3.7 on Fox).

· Boston was the top-rated market on the night with a 25.5/39, the highest-rated NHL game in Boston dating back to at least 1995, and topping the Boston rating for last year's NBA Finals Game 1 featuring the Celtics-Lakers (19.1/34).

· This is the first Stanley Cup Final featuring a Canadian team since the Ottawa Senators faced the Anaheim Ducks in 2007. The 3.2 overnight for last night's game is 113 percent higher than the first network broadcast of that series (1.5/3 for Game 3).

Top Metered Markets For Game 1

1. Boston, 25.5/39

2. Providence, 16.7/24

3. Buffalo, 7.2/11

4. Hartford, 5.5/8

5. Pittsburgh, 4.3/7
