Through First Three Rounds, 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs Are Most-Watched in 17 Years

STAMFORD, Conn. - June 3, 2014 - The Los Angeles Kings-Chicago Blackhawks Game 7 overtime thriller on Sunday night averaged 4.137 million viewers, according to The Nielsen Company, making it:

· the most-watched non-Stanley Cup Final NHL Playoff game on record;

· the most-watched NHL game ever on NBCSN; and

· the most-watched non-Olympic program ever on NBCSN.

Sunday night's Western Conference Final Game 7 (8:01-11:16 p.m. ET) -- which pitted the last two Stanley Cup champions against each other and was won, 5-4, by the Kings in overtime -- surpassed Game 7 of the 1996 Eastern Conference Final between the Florida Panthers and Pittsburgh Penguins (ESPN, June 1, 4.049 million) as the most-watched non-Stanley Cup Final NHL playoff game on record.

Kings-Blackhawks surpassed Game 3 of last year's Stanley Cup Final between the Blackhawks and Boston Bruins (4.001 million) as the most-watched NHL game ever on NBCSN and the most-watched non-Olympic program ever on the network. It also had more viewers than USA-Russia (4.100 million) men's ice hockey during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

NBCSN was the No. 1 network on cable during the game Sunday night. It was the second-most watched cable program of the day among average viewers, P18-49 (1.909) and P25-54 (2.111), trailing only HBO's Game of Thrones. It also outperformed all broadcast programming among P18-49 and P25-54.

The game peaked at 5.5 million viewers from 10:30-10:45 p.m. ET, and delivered a 2.35 HH rating.
