This kills my playoff bracket, by the way. I had NSH/PIT Round 2.

Tampa probably isn't enough of a flashy name to draw ratings and Winnipeg might not be either, especially in the US.

6-2 before that, the games have been so one sided, I don't get it.

Doesn't make any sense at all, places like Florida need the team to do well to show up/watch/spend money, people in lovely rust belt cities will watch the sport regardless.

What did Rinne's GAA end up being for this game? 5 saves on 7 shots is a .714SV%.

Yes clearly the reason for the high ratings in 2015 was Tampa and not Chicago, who was in all 3 of the highest-rated SCFs of the past 15 years.

I don't post here much because sports bring out the worst in my emotions and posting but I just wanted to say I'm unspeakably happy we won and give my condolences to Nashville fans. I honestly think these were the two best teams in the playoffs and even if a lot of the games were kind of poo poo it was a good series.
