Stanley Cup Game 6 viewership up 66 percent
NEW YORK -- The Blackhawks' Stanley Cup-clinching win was watched by almost two-thirds more viewers than last year's Game 6.
It was down slightly from the 8.28 million for Game 6 between the Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers in 2010.
The series averaged 5.76 million viewers on NBC and NBC Sports Network, making it the most-watched Stanley Cup Final since records started being kept in 1994, though the population was smaller then.
