Stanley Cup Final Ratings Take Tumble While NBA Finals Ratings Surge for Game 1

Stanley Cup Final Ratings Take Tumble While NBA Finals Ratings Surge for Game 1The NHL and the NBA are going in different directions this spring, at least in terms of TV ratings.

Just one day after the lowest-rated Stanley Cup Final since 2007, the NBA Finals kicked off with the highest-rated Finals Game 1 since 2002, according to SportsBusiness Daily.

There's no secret that the NHL still trails the other major sports when it comes to TV ratings, and it's clear that a Cup Final featuring two teams that don't have much reach across North America didn't help much, either.
