Blackhawks’ win against Colorado keeps ratings run going


The Chicago Blackhawks’ historic point streak is drawing fantastic ratings on just about every network it touches.

After Sunday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings drew record ratings for NBC, Wednesday’s come-from-behind win versus the Colorado Avalanche generated big numbers as well.

With an average of 720,000 viewers, it ranked ninth all-time in NBC Sports Network history. It was especially huge in Chicago, where the 7.0 local rating set a record for NBC SN in that market. It also made NBC SN the No. 1 rated cable network overall in Chicago during that time.

You might be sensing a pattern with this team, as their Tuesday victory against the Minnesota Wild was the highest-rated Blackhawks game ever covered on CSN Chicago.
