Game 7 earns highest NHL ratings for ABC

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday night on ABC drew the highest rating for an NHL game since broadcast networks began carrying the finals in 1998.

The New Jersey Devils' 3-0 victory over the Anaheim Mighty Ducks garnered a 4.6 rating with an 8 share.

The previous rating high was 4.2, earned by three games including Detroit's Cup-clinching Game 5 win over Carolina last season, which also had an 8 share. Colorado's Game 7 defeat of New Jersey in 2001 got a 4.2 with a 9 share, while New Jersey's clinching Game 6 win over Dallas in 2000 got a 4.2 rating with a 10 share, the network said.

Monday night's Game 7 also produced the highest rating -- 3.4 with a 10 share -- for male viewers aged 18-49 since 1998.

The rating is the percentage of all homes with TVs, whether or not they are in use. The share is the percentage of televisions in use tuned to a program.
