NEW YORK (AP) -Overnight ratings for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals were up from the previous game and down from last year.
The Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night received a 2.3 overnight rating and a 4 share on NBC, the network said Tuesday. That was up from the 1.5/3 for Saturday night's Game 3, but down 4 percent from last year's Game 4 between Edmonton and Carolina, which drew a 2.4/5.
The decline wasn't as large as it had been for Game 3, when ratings were down 12 percent from last year.
Overnight ratings measure 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.
Nationals ratings were due later Tuesday.
