For some perspective Los Angeles had a 6.7 rating for the deciding game of tge cup finals. A record for LA.

For some more perspective, the Pens scrimmage this week got a 6.7 rating on Root

Allegheny county. And yes. Not quite superbowl numbers but half of them when 40 percent of households tune in. Ridiculous numbers for hockey.

Can't wait to see the appreciation for how the fans of teams in the rest of the league sees Pittsburgh's embrace of the return of hockey.

I main boarded it, 12 responses without people being negative. Something doesn't add up.

Give it some time. Gems "Buttman rigged the teevee" take a significant amount of time and effort to create.

Well no football, lots of anticipation, great timing of an afternoon game on a lazy Saturday. I can see it.

Well, it appears that the Earth has stopped rotating and Satan is advertising 'Ice Follies in the Netherworld', so that may have something to do with it.

That's great. Pittsburgh can't get enough of a new sport. And seeing that hockey has only been in existence for 7 years, I think it can still be classified as new, at least in comparison to the other sports.

They are ignoring it completely because it challenges their worldview that we suck as a hockey market. They will not post at all because then they would have to deal with hard numbers and facts. That is actually the honest truth. Do not expect the usual suspects to post there at all.

The Eagles aren't playing either and the game only drew 7 in Cryerland. Now maybe my Leaf homer friend will shut up about Pittsburgh being a bad hockey town.
