The quest for Lord Stanley’s Cup begins tonight.
When the puck drops, many will drop what they’re doing to tune in to the
National Hockey League’s 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The regular season brought plenty of surprises—among them the success of
the expansion Las Vegas Golden Knights, who won their division.
The Nashville Predators finished the season with the league’s best record,
and the Pittsburgh Penguins finished second in their division, setting up a
potential rematch between last year’s Stanley Cup Finals contenders.
The NHL would be happy to repeat—or surpass—last year’s record-setting
Stanley Cup Final viewership numbers, too.
press release, NBC Sports Group shared that it was the highest-viewed final ever that
didn’t include an “Original Six” team—that is, Chicago, Boston, Detroit,
Montreal, New York Rangers or Toronto. It also showed a large uptick in
viewers from the previous postseason.
The release reads, in part:
Game 6 on NBC, which the Pittsburgh Penguins won by a score of 2-0 on
Sunday night to become the first team to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions
since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998, averaged a TAD of 7.086
million viewers, up 29% vs. last year’s Cup-clinching Game 6 on NBC
featuring Pittsburgh and San Jose (5.476 million).
Across 84 games on NBC/NBCSN/CNBC/USA Network, the 2017 Stanley Cup
Playoffs averaged a TAD of 1.387 million viewers, up 11% vs. the 2016 postseason (89 games; 1.253 million).
Want to work in the communications department for one of the teams making

media relations assistant.
