Penguins Lead NHL Local TV Ratings Again

From the Pittsburgh Business Times:

For at least the fourth consecutive season, the Pittsburgh Penguins are the kings of the NHL’s local TV ratings, as Pens games on ROOT Sports this season averaged the league’s highest rating of 8.68.

The Penguins also have attracted the NHL’s largest average audience, at 101,000 homes per game, even though Pittsburgh is the league’s 22nd largest market.

Playoff Intro Video: Detroit Red Wings

Red Wings have a mix of a time lapse video and wide bowl shot from their playoff opener last night.

When I’ve been to the Joe for playoff games, they’ve always been very theatrical with the scoreboard (it kinda sucks) being almost secondary.  Looks like the trend continues here, andit looks similar to what we’ve seen in the past.

Would have liked to seen the scoreboard video though, maybe tomorrow they post it.
