Stanley Cup Draws Strong Ratings in Hartford

After the announcement that the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers will move to Winnipeg, many fans of former Hartford Whalers asked “why not Hartford?”  A few days later, Hartford drew the fourth-highest TV rating in the US for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup:

1. Boston, 25.5/39
2. Providence, 16.7/24
3. Buffalo, 7.2/11
4. Hartford, 5.5/8
5. Pittsburgh, 4.3/7

Do you think people in Hartford still love their hockey?
