NHL Viewership Takes a Backseat to Women’s College Basketball in Sports Headlines

I’ll be honest: I’m not much of a basketball fan.

I don’t watch the NBA or college basketball (NCAA), and I have no idea who won March Madness.
I do know that LSU won the college women’s basketball championship Sunday night because it was all over the news. I’ve seen those two women putting their hands in front of their faces all over social media, and I still have no idea what’s going on…

All of this is to say again that I’m not really a basketball fan and will not pretend to be one.

What I do know is that the game Sunday night was massive, with over 12 million people tuning in.

The NHL WISHES they could generate those kinds of numbers.
In fact, last night’s championship game was bigger than anything the NHL has broadcast in nearly 30 years.

Ouch…..for the NHL…

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
