LIVING VICARIOUSLY THROUGH US:

Game 7 of Cup final between Canucks and Bruins breaks CBC ratings record (The Canadian Press, 2011-06-16)

An average audience of 8.76 million Canadians tuned in to watch the Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0 on Wednesday night, making it the most-watched NHL broadcast in the public broadcaster's history.

The overnight ratings were just behind the network record from 2002, when 8.96 million Canadians watched the Olympic men's hockey final between Canada and the United States in Salt Lake City. [...]

The game was also a ratings hit south of the border, where it earned the highest television rating for an NHL game in 37 years.

The game had a 4.8 rating and 8 share on NBC. That's the best since a 7.6/27 for Boston-Philadelphia in 1974.
