NESN Notches Highest-Rated Bruins Regular-Season Game in History

NESN scored its highest rating ever for a Boston Bruins regular season game in the team’s 3-0 home loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 18. The game posted a 6.2 household rating for the network.

NESN’s highest rated Bruins game ever was a 14.2 rating for game 7 of last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinal against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Bruins (76 points) are right in the middle of a heated battle for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. Following a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers (71 points) on Sunday, Boston will travel to Atlanta Tuesday to face off against the Thrashers (75 points), which sit just point behind the Bruins in the playoff race.
