I am not sure how many actual viewers this amounts to but I believe it puts NJ firmly in the middle of the pack in the NHL. A marked improvement over the bottom-feeder it used to be. This is coupled with NJ finally selling out almost all of its games, showing a genuine uptick in interest since the cup run last year.
It also helps that there new arena is an urban area and not in the middle of a swamp.
