The chants have been around hockey in the US for a long time, I think they originated in NCAA.  Have been hearing them in AZ for 10 years.

Wow, Matt Murray's glove is getting exposed big time. Preds going there over and over.

The "book" is out on Murray. This has got to be one of the laziest media-driven narratives ever. And I could make a list of 100s of them.

That's fun. Don't the shooting stats say blocker side has a lower save percentage though?

That's the sequel.  That book isn't out yet.

Nice cabinet.  Nashville's playoff rookie sensation Frederik Gaudreau doesn't have a locker..

He said after the game he would be happy to sit on the floor as long as he's playing. First 3 goals of his career are in the stanley cup final, 2 of them game winners.

I hope they let him keep the cabinet after the finals.

3 days apart the rest of the way... why? Blue Jays are out west too (10pm start) and I'm not an NBA fan. Sports drought right now.

Nashville is the new standard...

To say that the Stanley Cup Final has been a smashing success in Nashville would be an understatement.

The Predators' run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs...has set television ratings records in the Nashville market. Game 4 had a 28.0 rating, the highest-rated Predators game ever on the NBC networks, topping the 22.5 for Game 1 of the Final. Nationally, NBC had a 4.14 rating, surpassing all games in the Stanley Cup Final last season.

And...

NBC’s Pittsburgh Penguins at the Nashville Predators Stanley Cup Finals hockey competition dominated Monday night in early ratings, in the demo, total viewers and adults 25-54. Fast-affiliate ratings have the hockey game at a 1.8 demo rating and about 5.5M viewers, but those stats are not time zone-adjusted and subject to revision for live sporting events. More reliably, the hockey match climbed 33% increase compared to same game last year in metered-market household ratings, which are time zone-adjusted.

But, in fast nationals, Bachelorette took first half hour in both metrics, with Stanley Cup appearing to take over the demo at 8:30 PM, adding total viewers to its win column at 9:30 PM.

NBC won the night in total viewers (5.484M) and in the demo 1.8.  ABC finished second (1.2, 4.66M).

I know this is probably just a case of me growing into the crotchety old man I've always been but I just can't for the life of me believe people trying to generate controversy and buzz around what Subban and Crosby got into last game. I'm not pro-violence in the league and I'm not someone who likes the occasional gatekeeper aspect of hockey fans but for us old timers "controversial violence" in the playoffs used to be Wendel Clark caving half of Marty McSorley's face in. Now it's Crosby giving a couple of pretty gentle shots to a guy grabbing onto his leg.

Kids today, rassum frassum.
