Bruins-Flyers Lake Tahoe Game On NBCSN Breaks Ratings Record

Not too shabby

by

It seems a lot of people tuned in to watch the Boston Bruins take on the Philadelphia Flyers in Lake Tahoe over the weekend.

And by a lot, we mean a record-setting amount of people.

The NHL on Sunday announced Boston’s 7-3 win was the most-watched regular season game in NBC Sports Network history. The game garnered a total of 1.068 million viewers, even after the game was pushed from 2 p.m. ET to 7:30 p.m.

The previous record was 978,000, so this also marks the first time a game surpassed 1 million views.

What’s more, it also was the highest rating for an NHL broadcast on cable television since the Detroit Red Wings and San Jose Sharks game in 2002.
