Pens' Game 7 win most-watched NHL game in decades
The Penguins' Stanley Cup triumph Friday was the most-watched NHL game since the early 1970s, according to NBC.
Almost 8 million people around the United States watched the Penguins' Game 7 victory over the Detroit Red Wings, broadcast from Detroit on NBC.
That is the largest U.S. television audience, measured by the number of viewers, since Game 6 of the 1973 finals, NBC announced this evening.
