Devils reach high ratings again

Yesterday’s coverage of Devils-Flyers on NBC sparked a 1.9 overnight rating, writes Puck The Media.

The New York market drew a 2.5 rating, which was the highest number for a Devils game in the New York market since 2006, when the Devils and Rangers drew a 2.8 rating.

The number was also up 92% from the last Devils playoff game on NBC, against the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2007.

The Capitals-Rangers on Saturday and Devils-Flyers on Sunday produced the best overnight average for weekend coverage of the second round since two-game regional coverage on ABC (1.9) on May 1, 2004.
