NBC’s Blackhawks/Capitals Game Down a Tick


Overnight ratings declined slightly for Sunday’s overtime battle between the Blackhawks and Capitals.

The Capitals’ 4-3 win over the Blackhawks earned a 0.9 overnight rating on NBC Sunday afternoon, down a tick from last year (WSH/CHI: 1.0), and down 18% from 2009 (PHI/NYR: 1.1).

The 0.9 is tied as the lowest of the season for the NHL on NBC.

Four times this season, overnight ratings have declined for NHL coverage on NBC compared to the comparable date last year.
