Comcast SportsNet Chicago ended its season of Chicago Blackhawks game telecasts Tuesday with the Blackhawks' second-round-clinching victory over the Vancouver Canucks. It was not a record-breaking telecast in terms of ratings, even though the game's outcome no doubt thrilled plenty of Blackhawks fans. The game telecast was, however, the second-highest-rated Blackhawks game telecast in Comcast SportsNet history -- notching a 9.93 rating, just slightly behind the all-time 10.14 ratings record set during game three against the Canucks on May 5.
Though no more Blackhawks games will be seen on the cable sports channel this season, CSNC president James Corno promised viewers extended post-game coverage following every Blackhawks game going forward. Plenty of fans no doubt hope the team will go forward all the way to the Stanley Cup finals.
