The Boston Bruins' Stanley Cup-clinching victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night
earned the highest television rating for an NHL game in 37 years.

Boston's 4-0 win in Game 7 on NBC earned a 4.8 rating and 8 share. That's the best since a 7.6/27
for Boston-Philadelphia in 1974.

It's up 2 percent from last year's deciding Game 6 between Chicago and Philadelphia and up
12 percent from the most recent Game 7 in 2009 between Detroit and Pittsburgh.

The seven games averaged 4.6 million viewers on NBC and Versus, the most for a series split between
network and cable involving a Canadian team.

The game earned a 43.4/64 in Boston, the best for a hockey game since records began being kept for
the market in 1991. That's higher than any game in the Celtics' last two NBA finals.

So the Stanley Cup visited Tias in the afternoon and then took a baby stroller ride to Stella's for dinner.

Lord Stanley was busy yesterday.

Parade scheduled for tomorrow - unfortunately I have a softball tournament to attend -maybe not so unfortunately as it will be a nightmare in Boston tomorrow.

They re-scheduled the Sox day game to a night game because of it.

@Mame,
Ah so that is what the booing was about. It did seem weird as the crowd seemed to be clapping alot and then all of a sudden there were lots of boos.

@panzade,
It was a very odd series, perhaps the weirdest I've ever seen. Vancouver wins two by one goal, at home, Boston hoses Vancouver the next two, at home, then Vancouver wins the next one at home by a goal, Boston beats Vancouver at home by 4 (?), then back to Vancouver where they hose Vancouver again.

@Mame,
Here is one of the photos my daughter sent me from Vancouver. I do not know the exact location, but it looks beautiful!

@wandeljw,
Hmmm... maybe Cypress Bowl? It is a beautiful area. Living here in land-locked Calgary, I often miss the ocean and the mountains, but I sure don't miss the rain.

We're going to park in Cambridge and walk in from there.
