NEW YORK – The Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup-clinching win was watched by almost two-thirds more viewers than last year’s Game 6.

The Hawks’ 3-2 victory Monday night over the Bruins had 8.16 million viewers on NBC, up from 4.93 million for the Los Angeles Kings’ clincher over the New Jersey Devils last year.

It was down slightly from the 8.28 million for Game 6 between the Hawks and Philadelphia Flyers in 2010.

The series averaged 5.76 million viewers on NBC and NBC Sports Network, making it the most-watched Stanley Cup Final since records started being kept in 1994, although the population was smaller then.
