The emotional game between the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins drew 847,000 viewers to NBC Sports Network, marking their fourth-most watched NHL regular season game, dating back to 2005 (NBCSN records include telecasts from 2005-06 on OLN and 2006-2011 on VERSUS). The game peaked with 1.1 million viewers at 10 p.m. ET, when the Sabres took a 3-2 win over the Bruins in a shootout. NBCSN was a top 10 cable network for the evening among Men 18-49 and Men 25-54, key NHL demographics.

In Boston, the game received a 7.9 rating, the third-highest rated Bruins regular season game ever on the network, and highest to not involve a game against the Montreal Canadiens. The game scored a 9.0 in the smaller, but similarly hockey-mad Buffalo. NBC Sports Network was the number one network in both markets during the game.
Not surprisingly the Bruins beat the Red Sox and Celtics on TV last night. You can tell by the last line. "NBC Sports Network was the number one network in both markets during the game."
