Not sure on ratings, but on this page they have the attendance:

Russia-Slovakia drew over 18000 IN toronto. The only game in Europe that sold-out was Sweden-Czech Republic. Finland-Sweden came close. Even the quarters held in Europe didn't sell-out.

Gee, I wonder why the NHL and NHLPA would prefer to host a tourney in NA?
