NEW YORK (AP) -Television ratings for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals more than doubled from last year.
The Pittsburgh Penguins' triple-overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday earned a 3.8 national rating and a 7 share on NBC, the network said Wednesday. That's up 111 percent from last season's Game 5 between Anaheim and Ottawa, which drew a 1.8.
It was the highest-rated Game 5 since 2002, when Carolina-Detroit earned a 4.2.
The rating is the percentage watching a program among homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into the broadcast among those households with TVs on at the time.
