The 2019 Stanley Cup Final went right to down the Zamboni, but last night’s Game 7 of the NHL series belonged to the St. Louis Blues. Scoring a 4-1 victory over the Boston Bruins in Beantown, the Missouri team won the first Stanley Cup in their 52-year old franchise history. For some, this year was a long-overdue rematch of the 1970 Stanley Cup. For others, like the Blues’ Ryan O’Reilly, the adrenaline of victory was clearly surging – as were the ratings. In a series that has seen a number of double-digit upticks over previous years and more than a few records for NBC and the NHL, Wednesday’s Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final snared a 6.2/12 in metered markets. No surprise that’s the best any game has done this year in the early metrics and up 33% from Game 6 on June 9. Up 8% over the last time the Stanley Cup went to a Game 7, the 2019 Game 7 is also the best overnight result for any NHL game going back to 1994.
