The Stanley Cup rematch is garnering similar Canadian television ratings as last year.
CBC announced Monday that 1.875 million viewers watched the Detroit Red Wings take a 2-0 series lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins, a small increase over the 1.869 million who watched Game 2 last year.
Game 1 saw a decrease from 2.1 to 1.7 million viewers.
The Red Wings won the Cup over the Penguins in six games in 2008.
In the United States, NBC’s telecast of Game 2 drew a 3.4 rating and a six share. That’s up from the 2.6 rating and five share of Saturday’s Game 1.
The U.S. rating is the percentage watching a program among homes with televisions, and the share is the percentage tuned into the broadcast among those households with TVs on at the time.
