 NEW YORK (AP) -Another small television audience watched Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Ottawa's 5-3 victory over Anaheim on Saturday night received a 1.5 overnight rating and a 3 share on NBC, the network said Monday. That was down 12 percent from the 1.7/3 for Edmonton's 2-1 win over Carolina in Game 3 last year.
Overnight rating measures the 55 largest television markets in the United States, and each overnight rating point represents about 735,000 households. The rating is the percentage watching a telecast among all homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned in to a broadcast among those households with televisions on at the time.
Cleveland's series-winning 98-82 victory over Detroit in the NBA Eastern Conference finals, which was opposite hockey's Game 3, received a 5.3 overnight rating on TNT.
National ratings will be available later this week.
The first two Stanley Cup games of the finals were on Versus, with Game 1 watched by 523,000 homes and Game 2 by 446,000.
