Kings-Blackhawks Game 5 overtime thriller is a TV ratings bonanza for NBCSN

The Kings double-overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Wednesday was the most-watched West finals game on cable TV in five years, according to NBCSN. The game, won by the Blackhawks 5-4, averaged 2.175 million viewers nationally, up 79 percent over the last Game 5 on cable in 2012. Locally, the game delivered a 3.0 rating, not bad for the Southern California market, but still a long way from the 16.3 rating in Chicago.
