By comparison, the Celtics averaged a 3.1 on Comcast SportsNet New England during the first half of the NBA season, and the Red Sox averaged a 6.4* on NESN during the 2012 MLB campaign. (NESN)"

Another comparison, the game 7 cup final game against Vancouver had the exact same ratings locally as Patriots/Giants Super Bowl during the undefeated season and beat the Lakes/Celtics game 7 final.

The Bruins are also the most popular secondary market seller in the city.

Game 7- 43.4

2008 Super Bowl- 55.6
