Though not as impressive as the Bruins’ rise, the New York Rangers have had a modest increase in ratings to start the season.
Through 20 games, Rangers games have averaged a 0.80 rating on MSG Network in the New York market, up 7% from the comparable point last year (0.75).
Tuesday’s game between the Penguins and Rangers earned a 1.60 rating, a season-high.
* The MSG Network press release listed the Penguins/Rangers game as having taken place on Monday night, but NHL.com listed the game as taking place on Tuesday. The assumption here is that MSG Network was in error.
