yeah, you did.

TSN (from your link)
Quote:
TSN’s audience of 2.8 million for the game was the highest audience ever recorded for an NHL game on TSN
[...]
RDS’ audience of 1.9 million represents an impressive 51% share of the Quebec-Franco market and was the top-ranked French network in all key advertising demographics. RDS’ average for the Montreal-Washington series was 1.34 million over seven games
[...]
TSN’s average audience for each of its first round playoff series is as follows:
Montreal-Washington (7 games on TSN) – 1.8 million
Detroit-Phoenix (7 games on TSN) – 811,000
Chicago-Nashville (5 games on TSN) – 777,000
New Jersey-Philadelphia (4 games on TSN) – 545,000
CBC (http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/stan...-roundone.html)
Quote:
he Ottawa Senators/Pittsburgh Penguins matchup, featuring Nova Scotia native Sidney Crosby, drew an average audience of two million, followed by Colorado/San Jose (825,000) and Buffalo/Boston (736,000).

The highest average HNIC single-game audience of 2.948 million tuned into Game 6 between the Senators and Penguins, who overcame a 3-0 deficit to post a 4-3 overtime victory on Saturday night.

i've bolded the problem. it's RDS. Montreal is always going to be a bad or at least risky pick for cbc or tsn when a third of the fanbase chooses to watch in french.
